Los Angeles Voters to Decide on Pay-to-Play Ban
City Council has approved a ballot measure proposed by the Los Angeles Ethics Commission creating a ban on pay-to-play contributions.
If passed on March 8, the Charter amendment will prohibit companies bidding on city contracts from giving campaign donations to city candidates.
Companies found in violation of the ban would be barred from doing business with the city for one to four years.
