Denver City Council members and other identified officials would have to report gifts worth more than $50 a year, double the current threshold amount, under an ordinance revising the municipal code. A separate ordinance updating the city's lobbyist registration requirements includes clearer definitions of who would have to comply with those reporting requirements.
The council's Finance and Governance Committee, at its Tuesday, Nov. 29, meeting, sent both ordinances to the full council. The action followed an earlier committee meeting where the changes were first discussed.
