Five City Council members recently asked the Los Angeles Ethics Commission to address the issue of real estate developers making political contributions.
Developers can appear to be benefiting when elected officials they’ve supported grant them land-use perks such as zoning exemptions.
This campaign finance reform initiative focuses on restricting donations specifically from developers, contractors, and subcontractors whose projects are being reviewed by the city.
