To help ensure that they meet the grant requirements established in the Government Code, counties should ensure that benefit committees' conflict-of-interest codes comply with the political reform act by reviewing the act and their codes, and changing the codes as necessary to meet the act's requirements.
The conflict-of-interest codes are aligned with the political reform act and addressed in the Committee Bylaws. These were approved in December 2013. Bylaws are reviewed for compliance every two years.
The local committees by-laws (which include the conflict of interest provisions)have been reviewed and updated by committee counsel. The local committee will be considering the by-law/conflict of interest provisions at a special meeting in November or December 2013. The revisions to be considered for approval to the Indian Gaming Community Benefit Committee's Bylaws will align conflict of interest provisions with the political reform act.
Will consider adoption of amendment to the Indian Gaming Community Benefit Committee's Bylaws to align conflict of interest codes with the political reform act.
