The Los Angeles City Charter requires the Ethics Commission to regularly evaluate the effectiveness of the City's laws regarding governmental ethics, campaign financing, and lobbying and to make recommendations about the laws to the Mayor and the City Council.
Recent policy issues are noted below. You can also access legislative updates through the Commission's agendas, for more information about issues that are being considered or recommended by the Commission.
As with all of the laws within the jurisdiction of the Ethics Commission, the enforcement regulations are periodically reviewed to evaluate where improvements should be made. We have begun this process and would like to hear from you!
We would like to get your perspective on these proposed changes, which can be found by clicking here. Your comments are valuable to the Ethics Commission and can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
