The Government Accountability Board advises:
1) A member of an agency governing body who would receive an allocation of
business opportunities regulated by the agency should not participate, in an
official capacity, to increase those opportunities while the official is one of only a
handful of licensees eligible for such increase.
2) The official may not shield himself or herself from application of the Ethics
Code by transferring the member’s allocation to a sibling unless the official can
demonstrate that the transaction is not a mere sham and that neither the official
nor the official’s company will profit from the increase.
