Preliminary Report Recommending an Independent Ethics Commission

This 5-page PDF is a copy of the preliminary report of the Campaign Finance Committee of the Austin Charter Revision Commission recommending the City of Austin establish an Independent Ethics Commission. This Commission, if put on the ballot by the City Council and approved by voters, would be independent of the CityCouncil, City Manager, and City Attorney and would report to a public board that would hire an executive director. The Commission would adminster and enforce all campaign finance, ethics, conflicts, and lobbyist disclosure laws for the City of Austin.
