OGE Issues Proposed Rule Re Gifts for Executive Branch Employees


On November 27, 2015, the Office of Government Ethics issued a proposed rule that would revise the Standards of Ethical Conduct for Executive Branch Employees governing the solicitation and acceptance of gifts from outside sources. In the proposed rule, which has a comment period closing on January 26, 2016, the OGE has identified areas in which the new language is meant to "clarify" the existing rules and "incorporate past interpretive guidance."
