Political Activity

Congress and the Council of the District of Columbia have changed the restrictions on political activity by District government employees. Previously, District employees were subject to the same restrictions that applied to federal employees under a federal law known as the Hatch Act. Congress repealed this provision and the Council enacted local legislation regulating political activity of District employees.

For more information about what political activities are permitted, and what is prohibited, refer the District Ethics Manual available on BEGA’s website at http://bega.dc.gov
