Passed Senate (11/13/2019)
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.
Additionally, the prohibition applies only to the GPO director—not to other GPO personnel.
