Philadelphia City Council staffers have been drafting legislation that could finally determine what gifts, if any, a city employee or official can accept from outside sources, a top ethics official says.
The legislation could be introduced in Council in the next few weeks.
Council aides "presented us with new gift [legislation]. ... They asked us for technical assistance," Shane Creamer, the Ethics Board's executive director, said Wednesday. He said his staff has worked with aides to Council members Marian B. Tasco and Bill Green on a draft.
