Baltimore County Lobbyists Must Complete Ethics Training
Bill No. 35-17 was signed by County Exec. Kevin Kamenetz on July 12, 2017.
Effective August 26, 2017, registered lobbyists will be required to complete ethics training within the first six months of registration and once a year thereafter. The training may be completed in person or online.
The Ethics Commission has yet to develop the training and will have more information available later this year.
The final version of the bill will be available after the County Council’s meeting on August 7, 2017. The current version of the bill, with an incorrect effective date, is available.
