Scott Schneider of Mandeville, Louisiana has been appointed to the Louisiana Ethics Commission by Governor Bobby Jindal. Schneider was one of the first active RLC members in the state of Louisiana after the RLC’s formation in 1991.
Mr. Schneider has a degree in economics from the University of New Orleans and is a graduate of Washington and Lee Law School in Virginia. He is a board member of Louisiana CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) and the Hospice Foundation of the South. He will represent the 1st Congressional District, as required by statute.
The Louisiana Board of Ethics serves to administer and enforce conflicts of interest legislation, campaign finance disclosure requirements, and lobbyist registration and disclosure laws, to achieve compliance by governmental officials, public employees, candidates, and lobbyists and to provide public access to disclosed information.
Governor Jindal said, “It is important that ethics board members are completely free of any and all conflicts of interest. Our strict ethics laws not only help the state protect and serve the best interests of the people, but our reforms are also a strong signal to businesses around the world that Louisiana is open for business and competing to become the best place to raise a family and pursue a great career.”
