Governmental Ethics Ordinance Review by CEC
The City Ethics Commission is currently reviewing the City's
Governmental Ethics Ordinance (Los Angeles Municipal Code Sections
49.5.1 et seq). At its July 2010 monthly meeting, the
commission discussed amending the City's gift
restrictions. Since the voters approved Measure R in 2006,
gifts of any value made by a lobbyist or lobbying firm
that is a restricted source to a City official are prohibited.
The commission is considering extending that prohibition to
include gifts made from a lobbyist employer that is a restricted
source to the recipient. The same recommendation was made during
the commission's review of the Municipal Lobbying Ordinance.
We value your input in this discussion. If you would like to
participate in the process, please send your comments to email@example.com.
