Office of Congressional Ethics Releases Quarterly Activity Report

The House Ethics Committee confirmed last month that it received a case from the Office of Congressional Ethics involving Rep. Vern Buchanan.

If the office refers a matter with a recommendation for further review, the committee must release a report on the OCE’s findings after a 45-day period, which can be extended by an additional 45 days, unless it forms an investigative subcommittee to look into the matter.

Beyond the OCE’s two referrals for further review during the quarter, there were two matters sent with a recommendation for dismissal and a third for further review that was not finalized until the quarter had ended. The committee’s first statement on that case will come on May 17.
