What is a Financial Disclosure Statement ("FDS")?
A FDS is a publicly available record containing financial and professional information about the filer and his or her spouse for a calendar year.
Who Must File?
State officers and employees and other filers whose annual salary exceeds a certain threshold (currently CSEA SG-24 or $108,638), or whose agency has designated him or her as a policy maker, as well as statewide elected officials, members of the Legislature, and certain political party chairs.
What is the purpose?
The purpose of the FDS is to provide transparency about the private interests and activities of public officials and their relatives which could, among other things, help identify potential conflicts of interest.
