Summary

State and Local Government Conflict of Interests Act; disclosure by executive directors and members of industrial development authorities and economic development authorities; penalty. Requires the executive director and members of each industrial development authority and economic development authority, as created under the authority of the Industrial Development and Revenue Bond Act, to file a Statement of Economic Interests (SOEI) with the clerk of the local governing body as a condition to assuming office and thereafter annually on or before February 1. The first disclosure form for the executive director and members of each industrial development authority and economic development authority will be due on August 1, 2020. Current law requires members of industrial development authorities and economic development authorities to file a Financial Disclosure Statement unless the governing body that appoints the members has required the members to file an SOEI. The bill makes the filing of an SOEI mandatory. Current law provides that any person who knowingly and intentionally makes a false statement of material fact on the SOEI is guilty of a Class 5 felony.
