Baltimore City Ethics Ordinance Introduced
City Councilman Zeke Cohen introduced an ordinance amending the Baltimore City Ethics Code.
Ordinance No. 18-0230 requires lobbyists to file reports quarterly instead of annually. Additionally, the ordinance obligates lobbyists to affirmatively identify themselves as a lobbyist and the person on whose behalf they are lobbying to a public servant.
If passed, the ordinance will become effective 30 days after it is enacted.
