Case #65082
Respondent name: Alice Dietz
Complainant name: PDC Staff

On February 14, 2020, the Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) notified Alice Dietz of an alleged Violation of RCW 42.17A.615 failure to timely file your Monthly Lobbyist (L-2) Report disclosing Lobbying Income and Expenses for April 2019.

PDC staff have reviewed this matter and found the following:

The PDC received your 2019 L-2 report on February 18, 2020, as required by RCW 42.17A.615. As a Lobbyist registered to lobby in 2019, the monthly reports were due by the 15th day of each following month, making the report 279 days late.

Alice Dietz completed a Statement of Understanding (SOU) and paid a $100 civil penalty in accordance with WAC 390-37-143 (Brief Enforcement Penalty Schedule), acknowledging violations of RCW 42.17A.615 by failing to file one or more monthly Lobbying Expense reports (L-2 reports), due by the 15th day of each calendar month, disclosing lobbying activity in the previous calendar month. The $100 penalty assessed resolves the allegations listed in your complaint.

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.

Disposition: Resolved through Statement of Understanding (Resolved 03/03/2020)
