Form 802 Ticket Disclosure
In December 2008, the Fair Political Practices Commission (“FPPC”) amended its regulations pertaining to disbursement of tickets to and from a public agency, which are used by individual public officials. New regulations apply to tickets for admission to entertainment, recreational, amusement, and similar types of events. Unless specific circumstances exist, such tickets constitute a gift to a public official subject to the annual gift limitation of $420 from any one source in a calendar year, as set forth in FPPC regulations. However, if the tickets fit within certain descriptive uses (such as District business use), then such tickets do not constitute a gift to the public official.
