Scope and Content Note

This series consists of archival copies of the Web site of the State Commission on Public Integrity, which was created in September 2007, and its predecessor entities, the Temporary State Commission on Lobbying and the State Ethics Commission.

B2043-07: This accretion consists of an archival copy of the Temporary State Commission on Lobbying Web site that was produced on December 22, 2006, shortly before Governor George E. Pataki (1995-2006) left office. It contains information about the commission's history and mission; advisory opinions (1978-2005); a citizen guide to lobbying; information and forms for state and local government lobbyists; the commission's 2006 annual report; lists of top lobbyists and clients (2005); workshop calendars; and the final report of the Advisory Council on Municipal Lobbying (2002).

B2043-07A: This accretion consists of copies of the Temporary State Commission on Lobbying site and the State Ethics Commission section of the Department of State Web site that were produced on September 23, 2007, one day before these commissions were merged to form the State Commission on Public Integrity. In addition to the content contained in B2043-07, this copy of the Lobbying Commission site contains a transcript of testimony (2007) and other information concerning proposed changes to the State Lobbying Act and lists of top lobbyists and clients (2006). The live version of the Web site ceased to exist shortly after this copy was produced.

The copy of the State Ethics Commission section of the State Department of State Web site contains information about the commission's history, members and executive director, powers and duties, and enforcement actions (2004-2007). Also included are financial disclosure forms (2006-2007) for all candidates seeking the offices of governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, and state comptroller and a guide to ethical conduct for state employees. Almost all of this information was removed from the Department of State's Web site after the Commission on Public Integrity commenced operations.

Researchers should note that, owing to the structure of the Department of State's Web site and the limitations of Web archiving technology, the copy of the State Ethics Commission section of the Department of State Web site also contains almost all of the information that was present in the Department of State site on September 23, 2007, including information about the department's operations, the New York State Register (2003-2007), and several other commissions for which the Department of State provides administrative services.

B2043-08: This accretion consists of a copy of the State Commission on Public Integrity Web site produced on April 22, 2008, shortly after the resignation of Governor Eliot L. Spitzer (2007-2008). It includes information about the commission's history, mission, members, and executive director; publications and information for state government employees and elected officials; a citizen guide to lobbying; and advisory opinions issued by the Commission on Public Integrity (2007-2008), the State Ethics Commission (1988-2007), and the Temporary State Commission on Lobbying (1978-2005).

B2043-11: This accretion consists of a copy of the State Commission on Public Integrity site produced on January 27, 2011, shortly after Governor David A. Paterson (2008-2010) left office.
