As a general proposition, a legislator's simultaneous membership on the
governing board of a governmental entity is not an obstacle to the legislator's
discussions, deliberations, and votes upon matters before the Legislature that
affect the entity.

A legislator should not simultaneously receive compensation for services as a
member of a governmental agency’s governing board and participate as a
legislator in actions affecting a bill that would increase or sustain or preserve
the legislator’s eligibility to receive compensation from the entity. OEB 95-3
