Ethics Review Commission seeks input on lobbying changes
Friday, September 11, 2015 by Nora Ankrum
The Ethics Review Commission has been considering its stance on revising the city’s rules for lobbyists. As part of that effort, it is seeking public input, particularly regarding 21 proposals put forth by City Council’s Audit and Finance Committee. Ultimately, the revisions under consideration would expand the number of people to whom lobbying regulations apply under City Code. The commission is hosting a public meeting to gather input on Wednesday, Sept. 16 at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall. Anyone wishing to comment on the matter may also submit feedback online at SpeakUpAustin.org or by email at bc-Matthew.Lamon@austintexas.gov. The deadline for input is Sept. 25.
