Thank you for visiting the Kentucky Legislative Ethics Commission (KLEC) Web site.  We hope the information you find here will be helpful.

KLEC has jurisdiction over:

  • Legislative agents (lobbyists),

  • Members of the General Assembly.

The legislative ethics law covers four broad subject matters:

  • Registration of legislative agents and employers;
  • Statements by legislative agents and employers of:
    • lobbying expenditures and expenses, and
      financial transactions;
  • Conduct of members of the General Assembly; and
  • Financial disclosure statements of the General Assembly, legislative candidates, and key legislative staff.

(The next report covers 5/1/2014 to 8/31/2014 and is due on Monday, 9/15/2014)
