Kansas City Defeats Gift Ordinance
An ethics proposal in Kansas City to limit gifts from lobbyists to $5, restrict taxpayer-funded City Council travel, and extend the revolving door provision was defeated on July 26.
The proposal failed 7-4, even after a bill substitute increased the gift restriction to $50.
The ordinance was introduced by Councilman Scott Taylor, who is also a Kansas City mayoral candidate.
