Legislative Ethics Board


Pursuant to the Governor’s recent “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” order, the House and Senate have closed all offices until further notice. During the time period that the offices are closed, the Board will accept complaints that are emailed to Board counsel at Jennifer.Strus@leg.wa.gov. Please use the Complaint form available on the website, complete the information and, if possible, sign the form and scan to counsel’s email address. If scanning a copy is not possible, please email to Board counsel the required information contained on the complaint form. Please be advised that the acceptance of emailed complaints will cease once the buildings are reopened. At that time, the Board will return to its normal practice of only accepting complaints in hard copy sent by mail to Board counsel.

Mission Statement

To fairly administer the Ethics Act and to always be aware of the long-term effects that Board decisions may have on the legislative branch of government and the public trust.

To emphasize training and the utilization of ethics advisers so that, whenever possible, questions may be addressed in an educational rather than a confrontational setting.

The next meeting is scheduled for December 7, 2020 at 10:00 am. The location is virtual via Microsoft Teams. View the Agenda.
