Spokane Proposes Ethics Upgrade
The city is seeking to upgrade the city’s ethics code. Several changes have been proposed, including expanded penalties for violations, expanding the scope to cover people, adding a revolving door provision, and increasing the specificity of the gift definition.
Once finalized, approval by city council is expected early next year.
