Rule 3-11 Proof of Filing with the Conflicts of Interest Board; Payment of Penalties.

(a) Requirements. In order to be eligible to receive public funds, a participant must comply with the requirements in § 12-110 of the Code, including payment of any penalties assessed by the conflicts of interest board. The Board may obtain confirmation of the participant’s compliance from the conflicts of interest board. The failure of a participant to demonstrate such compliance by the deadline established by the conflicts of interest board may result in a delay of any payment by the Board of public funds the participant may otherwise be eligible to receive until the next scheduled payment date.

(1) Due dates. A participant may submit proof of compliance with the Board and such proof shall be considered timely submitted if it is submitted to the Board on or prior to the last business day of July in the year of the covered election, except as provided by paragraph (2).

(2) Special election due dates. In the case of a special election, if the deadline for filing financial disclosure reports with the conflicts of interest board pursuant to § 12-110(b)(2) of the Code is before the due date for the first disclosure statement required to be filed with the Board pursuant to Rule 3-02(a)(2), the participant’s compliance with the requirements in § 12-110 of the Code shall be considered timely demonstrated to the Board if the Board receives confirmation of the participant’s compliance on or prior to the disclosure statement due date. If the deadline for filing financial disclosure reports with the conflicts of interest board pursuant to § 12-110(b)(2) of the Code is on or after the due date for the first disclosure statement required to be filed with the Board pursuant to Rule 3-02(a)(2), the participant’s compliance with the requirements in § 12-110 of the Code shall be considered timely demonstrated to the Board if the Board receives confirmation of the participant’s compliance no later than one business day after the last day for filing disclosure reports with the conflicts of interest board.
