The bills discussed below passed the council on March 22.
Just down the road from Philadelphia, Baltimore too is considering
ethics reforms, but it's in response to a scandal involving its past
mayor rather than in response to the work of a task force.
There are two bills before the Baltimore council, both of them
introduced while the new mayor was council president. One
makes changes to the city's ethics board composition and ethics
to the city's ethics code. Neither is much to get excited about.
