OGE Proposes New Ethical Standards for Executive Branch Employees
On September 13, 2011, the Office of Government Ethics published notice of proposed amendments to the regulations governing ethical conduct for executive branch employees of the Federal Government. The proposed amendments limit the use of gift exceptions by all employees to accept gifts from registered lobbyists and lobbying organizations. The proposals also implement the lobbyist gift ban for appointees required to sign the Ethics Pledge prescribed by Executive Order 13490.

Written comments are invited and must be received by OGE before November 14, 2011.
