CEO 75-80 -- April 15, 1975
FORMS 2, 3, AND 4
FILING NOT REQUIRED WHERE NOT APPLICABLE
To: Howard L. Rhodes, Department of Pollution Control, Tallahassee
Prepared by: Bonnie Johnson
Reference is made to CEO 74-12. CE Forms 2, 3, and 4 seek affirmative information and therefore need not be filed if the answers to all required information are "none" or "not applicable."
Must I, as a public officer, file CE Forms 2, 3, and 4 even if they are not applicable to me?
This question is answered in the negative.
Please find enclosed a copy of a previous opinion of this commission, CEO 74-12, which answers your inquiry as to CE Forms 2 and 3. The rationale upon which this opinion is based is equally applicable to CE Form 4, as the type of disclosure sought is positive or affirmative in nature. Your question is answered accordingly.
