Baltimore Ethics Bill Amended
In April, City Councilman Zeke Cohen introduced an ordinance amending the Baltimore City Ethics Code.
Ordinance No. 18-0230 originally required lobbyists to file reports quarterly instead of annually.
At a work session for the bill, the reporting period was amended from quarterly to semi-annual reporting.
The bill was also amended to require a working online portal by June 1, 2019.
If passed, the ordinance will become effective 30 days after it is enacted.
