Public Law No: 116-78 (12/05/2019)

This bill revises conflict-of-interest limitations for personnel at the Government Publishing Office (GPO).

Current law prohibits GPO personnel from having any printing-related interest.

This bill creates an exemption for certain interests—interests in diversified mutual funds, diversified unit investment trusts, employee benefit plans, and retirement plans—that have underlying holdings in printing-related interests.
