On February 14, 2020, the Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) notified Jeff Bissonnette of an alleged violation of RCW 42.17A.615 for failure to timely file one or more monthly Lobbying Expense reports (L-2 reports) for 2019.
Jeff Bissonnette 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 for failure to timely file the L-2 report covering January 2019.
