Gift Ban
Chapter 10A prohibits most gifts to legislators, legislative staff, constitutional officers and other defined public officials given or requested by lobbyists or lobbyist principals. With minor exceptions, the prohibition includes the giving and the acceptance of money, real or personal property, services, loan, promises of future employment, meals, entertainment, and honoraria.

The Board has issued numerous opinions on the interpretation of the gift ban. The opinions are compiled in the Guide to Interpretation of Minnesota Statutes 10A.071, which is updated monthly.

Call Gary Goldsmith at 651-539-1190 or 800-657-3889 if you have questions about the gift ban.
