1. Gift Tickets
Sandra, an assistant commissioner, has asked a lobbyist to arrange to get her tickets to an event sponsored by the ABC Company. The ABC Company is not an employer of a lobbyist, but is a member of an association that does employ the lobbyist. Can the lobbyist arrange for Sandra to receive tickets?
The correct answer is (c).
TCA § 3-6-305(a)(1) prohibits a lobbyist or employer from providing a gift, directly or indirectly, to an official in the executive branch. TCA § 3-6-305(a)(2) prohibits an official in the executive branch from soliciting a gift.
