On February 13, 2020, the Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) notified Liberty Health Partners of an alleged violation of RCW 42.17A.630 for failure to timely file a Lobbyist Employer’s Expense Report disclosing lobbying activities for calendar year 2018, due no later than February 28, 2019.
The PDC received your annual L-3 report for 2018 on February 13, 2020, as required by RCW 42.17A.630. As a Lobbyist employer, the yearly report is due by the last day of February of each following year, making their report 350 days late.
PDC staff will now close PDC Case 64852 administratively and remove Liberty Health Partners from our hearing list. On February 21, 2020, the PDC received a signed Statement of Understanding and check #1364 for $100. As this case will be closed administratively, the PDC returned check #1364 via certified mail on February 24, 2020.
Based on this information, the PDC finds that no further action is warranted and has dismissed this matter in accordance with RCW 42.17A.755(1)(a) and WAC 390-37-060(1)(a). The PDC will not conduct a more formal investigation into these allegations or take further enforcement action in this matter.Disposition: Closed Administratively (Resolved 02/25/2020)
