Portland, Oregon to Reconsider Ethics Reforms
Today the Portland City Council is scheduled to reconsider adopting new ethics reform measures to broaden the revolving door prohibition to two years and increase the penalties associated with repeated ethics violations.
The proposal would also close a loophole in registration requirements, requiring lobbying entities that spend more than $1,000 a quarter on lobbying activities to register.
The proposed ordinance is a compromise that is less restrictive than a similar ordinance that was introduced in April 2016.
