Local Level Conflict of Interest
Although the Commission is the enforcement agency for the state level conflict of interest laws and the Campaign Finance Act, the Commission’s jurisdiction under the local level conflict laws is advisory only. Pursuant to K.S.A. 75-4303a(b) and Opinion 1994-25, the Commission lacks jurisdiction to hear and determine complaints under K.S.A. 75-4301 et seq. Violations of the local level conflict laws are handled by the appropriate County or District Attorney or the Attorney General’s office by criminal complaint.
