Attaching Information to a Previously Filed Statement
While the law requires that a financial disclosure statement must be complete at the time it is filed, a filer may submit additional information and request that the Commission attach it to a previously filed statement.
The Commission will acknowledge receiving the information, and then determine whether it should be attached to the statement. If the facts suggest that the filer inadvertently excluded the information, it will be attached to the previously filed statement and treated as part of the statement. If the facts suggest that the filer knowingly failed to provide the information, the Commission will consider whether further criminal action is required.
