Financial Disclosures

Idaho is now one of only two states that don't require personal financial disclosure by state lawmakers and other elected or appointed officials.

The Spokesman-Review reports Vermont legislators signed into law last month a series of ethics reforms including financial disclosure rules. That leaves just Idaho and Michigan as the states lacking a similar law.

The Idaho Legislature has appointed a working group of lawmakers to study possible changes to the state's campaign finance reporting rules and ethics, however.

Leaders in the Idaho Legislature are assembling a working group to examine ethics and financial disclosure requirements in the state.

Idaho is one of just three states requiring no financial disclosures for state legislators, other elected officials, and government appointees. So-called “revolving door” laws that prevent officials from immediately hopping into similar roles in the private sector – those too are absent.
