IV. PERSONAL INTEREST

Relevant provisions of the Conflicts Law and the Code of Ethics: N.J.S.A. 52:13D-18 and section 2:9 of the Code.

Summary: The concept of personal interest applies only to legislators and not employees since it concerns participating in legislation. As defined in the Conflicts Law and the Code "personal interest" means a member of the Legislature believes he or she will derive a direct monetary gain or suffer a direct monetary loss by the enactment or defeat of legislation which gain or loss is not generally shared by others who are members of the same business, profession, occupation or group as the legislator. Legislators are prohibited from participating in legislation in which they have a personal interest.
