About the bill
The Ethics in Government Act of 1978 requires certain government officials to file public disclosures of their financial and employment history. H.R. 3229 would extend through 2027 the authority of the Judicial Conference to redact sensitive information, such as the home address of a judge, contained in financial disclosure reports of judicial officers and employees if the Judicial Conference determines that such disclosure could endanger the individual. Under current law, that authority expires on December 31, 2017.
