  § 74. Code of ethics. 1. Definition. As used in this section: The term

  appointed by  the  governor  or  corporations  closely  affiliated  with
  specific  state agencies as defined by paragraph (d) of subdivision five
  of section fifty-three-a of the state finance law or their successors.
    The term "legislative employee" shall mean any officer or employee  of
  the legislature but it shall not include members of the legislature.
    2.  Rule with respect to conflicts of interest. No officer or employee
  of a state agency, member of the  legislature  or  legislative  employee
  should have any interest, financial or otherwise, direct or indirect, or
  engage  in any business or transaction or professional activity or incur
  any obligation of any nature, which is in substantial conflict with  the
  proper discharge of his duties in the public interest.
    3. Standards.
    a. No officer or employee of a state agency, member of the legislature
  or legislative employee should accept other employment which will impair
  his independence of judgment in the exercise of his official duties.
    b. No officer or employee of a state agency, member of the legislature
  or  legislative  employee  should  accept  employment  or  engage in any
  business or professional activity which will  require  him  to  disclose
  confidential  information  which he has gained by reason of his official
  position or authority.
    c. No officer or employee of a state agency, member of the legislature
  or  legislative  employee  should  disclose   confidential   information
  acquired  by  him  in  the  course  of  his official duties nor use such
  information to further his personal interests.
    d. No officer or employee of a state agency, member of the legislature
  or legislative employee should  use  or  attempt  to  use  his  official
  position  to  secure unwarranted privileges or exemptions for himself or
  others.
    e. No officer or employee of a state agency, member of the legislature
  or  legislative  employee  should   engage   in   any   transaction   as
  representative  or  agent of the state with any business entity in which
  he has a direct or indirect financial  interest  that  might  reasonably
  tend to conflict with the proper discharge of his official duties.
    f. An officer or employee of a state agency, member of the legislature
  or  legislative employee should not by his conduct give reasonable basis
  for the impression that any  person  can  improperly  influence  him  or
  unduly  enjoy  his  favor  in the performance of his official duties, or
  that he is affected by the kinship, rank, position or influence  of  any
  party or person.
    g. An officer or employee of a state agency should abstain from making
  personal  investments  in enterprises which he has reason to believe may
  be directly involved in decisions to  be  made  by  him  or  which  will
  otherwise  create  substantial  conflict  between his duty in the public
  interest and his private interest.
    h. An officer or employee of a state agency, member of the legislature
  or legislative employee should endeavor to pursue a  course  of  conduct
  which  will not raise suspicion among the public that he is likely to be
  engaged in acts that are in violation of his trust.
    i. No officer or employee of a state agency employed  on  a  full-time
  basis  nor  any firm or association of which such an officer or employee
  is a member nor corporation a substantial portion of the stock of  which
  is  owned  or  controlled  directly  or  indirectly  by  such officer or
  employee, should sell goods or services to any person, firm, corporation
  or association which is licensed or whose rates are fixed by  the  state
  agency in which such officer or employee serves or is employed.
