The Tennessee Comprehensive Governmental Ethics Reform Act of 2006 (“Act”) gives the Tennessee Ethics Commission (“Commission”) the power to conduct audits. In addition, the Act provides that it is the “duty” of the Commission to “[a]udit each year the registration statements, amendments to registration statements and reports of no more than four percent (4%) of all lobbyists” to determine compliance with the Act. The lobbyists are selected randomly, in the presence of a representative of the Office of the Attorney General and Reporter.
