The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint filed by Joe Hyer on February 8, 2018. The complaint alleged that Cindy Alia may have violated RCW 42.17A.600 for failure to register as a lobbyist, and RCW 42.17A.615 for failure to timely report lobbying activities.
Based on our findings, staff has determined that in this instance, failure to timely file monthly lobbyist reports in violation of RCW 42.17A.615 does not amount to a material violation warranting further investigation.
PDC staff is reminding Cindy Alia about the importance of the timely disclosure of all lobbying activities, and the timely filings of all future PDC reports, including the L-2 report.
The PDC has closed the matter, and will not be conducting a more formal investigation into the complaint or pursuing further enforcement action in this case.
Disposition: Case Closed with Reminder (Resolved 05/10/2018)
