On February 13, 2020, the Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) notified Community Education Center/GEO Group of an alleged violation of RCW 42.17A.630, for failure to timely file the annual Lobbyist Employer’s Expense report (L-3 report) disclosing lobbying activities for calendar year 2018.
PDC staff have reviewed this matter and found the following:
PDC records indicate that the contracted Lobbyist, Bill Clarke, is no longer registered to lobby for the reporting period that previously triggered monthly L-3 report due by February 28, 2019 to cover 2018 pursuant to RCW 42.17A.630.
PDC staff will now close PDC Case 64904 administratively and remove their name from our hearing list.
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 03/17/2020)
