The Connecticut Office of State Ethics is committed to serving the citizens of Connecticut, for there is nothing more important to the democratic process than having a government that maintains the highest ethical standards. 

Ethical questions and issues will inevitably arise and when they do, the Office of State Ethics is available to assist.  Our mission is to encourage accountability and integrity throughout state government.  We do this by providing legal advice, guidance and education to public officials, state employees and lobbyists; by sensibly interpreting and, when necessary, fairly and impartially enforcing applicable laws; and by ensuring required disclosure through the administration of the lobbyist and financial filing systems. 

Remember our Number One Rule:  Get Advice!
