The Joint Commission on Public Ethics (“Commission”) has revised its proposed draft regulations concerning public service announcements and is accepting informal public comments on them through August 16, 2013.

The proposed draft regulations are available at this link: http://jcope.ny.gov/advice/proposed regs/2013-06-19-940-PSA.pdf

Public comments on the revised proposed regulations may be sent electronically to robert.cohen@jcope.ny.gov and should include the phrase "proposed PSA regs" in the subject line.

The informal public comments, which will be made publicly available on the Commission's website, are being solicited in anticipation of the Commission submitting proposed regulations this fall for a formal public comment period under the State Administrative Procedure Act.
