The Commission also has administrative authority granted by the Governor by Executive Orders 189 (Kean, 1989), 41 (Codey, 2005), 68 (Codey, 2005), 14 (Corzine, 2006), and 24 (Christie, 2010).
Section 21(o) of the Conflicts Law directs the Commission to prepare, and ensure distribution to each State officer and employee and special State officer and employee in the Executive Branch, a plain language ethics guide designed to provide a clear and concise summary of the laws, regulations, codes, orders, procedures, advisory opinions and rulings concerning applicable ethical standards. The goal of this guide is to promote ethical day-to-day decision making, to give general advice regarding conduct and situations, to provide easy reference to sources, and to explain the role, activities and jurisdiction of the Commission. Each State officer and employee and special State officer and employee must certify that he or she has received the guide, reviewed it and understands its provisions.
