Anaheim City Council has voted to modify the city’s Sunshine Ordinance in response to the Angels Stadium corruption case.
The change mandates city employees must retain emails on their server for at least two years.
The new ordinance makes certain violations of the lobbying code misdemeanors and requires all reports filed by the lobbyists be done so under penalty of perjury.
The new ordinance also changes the due dates for quarterly reports from the last day of the month to 30 days from the end of the quarter.

Additional Disclosures Will Not Include Lobbyist Registrations
City Council has passed the resident-driven Sunshine Ordinance with the intention to make city government more transparent. The ordinance requires builders to hold community meetings in connection with certain developments and calls for online posting of additional information regarding requests for proposals.
Although advocates originally proposed registration requirements for lobbyists, the new law provides only online access to city officials’ scheduled meetings with lobbyists and to information on forms already required to be filed by campaign committees and public officials.
The measure’s effective date will be November 14, 2012, 30 days from Monday’s final vote.
