The Ethics Board advises that, consistent with the lobbying law:

   (1) a legislator may direct a letter to a lobbyist asking the lobbyist to ask
         others to endorse the legislator’s candidacy or to provide volunteer personal
         services to the legislator’s campaign such as erecting yard signs, delivering
         campaign literature, and stuffing envelopes (but not business or professional
         services); and

   (2) a legislator not direct a letter to a lobbyist asking the lobbyist to ask others
         to make a campaign contribution to the legislator’s campaign, except
         between June 1 and the day of the general election in the year of the election
         and then, if the legislator is running for reelection to the legislature, only if
         the legislature has concluded its final floorperiod and is not in special or
         extraordinary session.
