The concept of personal interest applies only to legislators and not employees since it concerns participating in
legislation. As defined in the Conflicts Law and the Code "personal interest" means a member of the Legislature
believes he or she will derive a direct monetary gain or suffer a direct monetary loss by the enactment or defeat
of legislation which gain or loss is not generally shared by others who are members of the same business,
profession, occupation or group as the legislator. Legislators are prohibited from participating in legislation in which
they have a personal interest.
