— A member of the North Carolina Board of Transportation has reported to the State Ethics Commission that he overlooked disclosing a possible conflict of interest.

The Carolina Journal reported that Mac Campbell, of Elizabethtown, owns a license-plate office in Bladen County. That ownership could be considered a conflict of interest because the business is a contractor for the Division of Motor Vehicles.

Campbell told The Journal that he overlooked reporting that ownership initially, but has since contacted the ethics panel to amend his report.

Campbell chairs the board's Finance and Programming Committee and is a member of the Motor Vehicles Committee.
