Burgum had previously reimbursed Xcel Energy nearly $40,000 for Super Bowl tickets that the company had gifted to him. The new policy applies to employees of the office including the governor and lieutenant governor. The prohibition doesn’t apply to gifts exchanged between family and friends, so long as circumstances “indicate a personal rather than business relationship.”
