Chicago Lobbying Ordinance Advances
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is in the process of passing an ethics ordinance related to government ethics and lobbyist registration.
Under Ethics Ordinance 2019-5305, a person acting on behalf of a nonprofit will not need to register as a lobbyist if he or she is unpaid or is providing technical assistance to the nonprofit.
The full City Council is scheduled to consider the mayor’s ethics reform on July 24.
