Hypothetical Situation No. 12

(same situation as No. 11)

You are hearing a bill on second reading that would establish a self-help law center in each county in the state. The bill provides funding to hire a full-time attorney to staff each center. You are an attorney and are very interested in applying for this position should the bill pass.

Now suppose that the bill requires each county to hire an attorney who has resided in and practiced in that county for the immediate past 5 years. You know that you are the only attorney in your county who meets these requirements.

Question: Assuming you determine that a conflict of interest exists, do you have to disclose the conflict of interest before voting on the bill?

AYes, you are required to disclose a conflict of interest before voting.
BNo, as long as you vote against the bill.
CNo, you would have voted for the bill even if you were not eligible for the position.
DNo, it is not your fault that there are no other qualified attorneys in your county to fill the position.
