New and Free(!) Resource for Counties on Ethics Laws
When it comes to California’s ethics laws, it can be a love-hate relationship for local officials. County officials appreciate the boundaries and accountability the laws create for those in public service for the wrong reasons. Understanding the ever-changing nature of these laws for the well-intended county official, however, can be a challenge.
To help, the CSAC’s research affiliate, the Institute for Local Government, has just released an updated version of its publication, Understanding the Basics of Public Service Ethics. This resource is available for free as a downloadable e-book at www.ca-ilg.org/EthicsLaws.
