Portland, Oregon to Consider Ethics Reforms
The Portland City Council will consider adopting new ethics reform measures to broaden the revolving door prohibition to two years, and increase the penalties associated with repeated ethics violations. The proposal would also close a loophole in registration requirements, requiring lobbying entities that spend more than $1,000 a quarter on lobbying activities to register.
A separate ordinance requiring political consultants working with Portland politicians to meet certain reporting and registration requirements will also be considered.
The new ordinances will be introduced at the council meeting on April 13, 2016.
