84(R) - 2015
Relating to the contents of financial statements that are electronically filed by certain persons.
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
This legislation would exempt candidates who are filing their electronic financial statements from having a signed affidavit, and instead verifying their submission by means of a password.
Vote Recommendation Notes
We support this legislation under the personal responsibility and individual liberty principles. Due to advancements of technology, candidates can now file financial disclosure forms online. However, under current law, they would need to still have an affidavit notarized. This legislation would exempt electronic filings from requiring a notarized affidavit and replace the verification with a password. We support this legislation to aide those filing proper forms to comply with those requirements more efficiently.
