Complainant name: PDC Staff

On February 13,2020, the Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) notified Natural Extractions, Inc. of an alleged violation of RCW 42.17A.630 for failure to timely file an annual Lobbying Employer’s Expense report (L-3 report) disclosing lobbying activities for calendar year 2018.

Natural Extractions, Inc. completed a Statement of Understanding (SOU) and paid a $100 civil penalty in accordance with WAC 390-37-143 (Brief Enforcement Penalty Schedule), acknowledging a violation of RCW 42.17A.630 for failure to timely file the annual L-3 report disclosing lobbying activity in calendar year 2018, due no later than February 28, 2019. The L-3 report was received February 20, 2020, 357 days beyond the statutory deadline. The $100 penalty assessed resolves the allegations.

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). The PDC will not conduct a more formal investigation into these allegations or take further enforcement action in this matter.
