The Ethics Board advises that a state public official may proceed with a plan
to have another solicit assistance for operation of the official’s agency to the
extent, but only to the extent, that the official could undertake the
solicitation directly. Whether directly or through another acting at the
official’s behest, the official may not solicit contributions of money, goods or
service either from a lobbyist or from an organization that employs a lobbyist
or from anyone if either the contribution or the failure to contribute could
reasonably be expected to influence the official’s action or judgment or be
considered a reward for the official’s action or inaction.
