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 ethics.policy@lacity.org.
