State ethics officials have dropped charges against a state utility regulator who didn't file his required personal financial disclosure report on time.

Public Service Commissioner Lambert Boissiere III has since filed the document, so the Louisiana Board of Ethics agreed not to pursue the charges.

Boissiere still must pay late filing penalties.

He can be penalized up to $2,500 for his tardiness in filing the report showing his 2008 personal finances.

He is running for re-election, opposed by former PSC member John Schwegmann.

The election is Oct. 2.
