Transparency Bill Heads to Baltimore, MD City Council
A bill introduced in 2015 is finally advancing to the full City Council.
If passed, Bill 15-0568 would require Baltimore’s Finance Department to post on its website a searchable list of all entities doing business with the city by February 1 of each year. Similarly, the bill would require the Ethics Board to post on its website a searchable list of all lobbyists by February 1 of each year.
The bill will likely be voted on by City Council on November 14, 2016.
