On December 12, 2012, Mayor Bloomberg signed Local Law 58 of 2012, amending the financial disclosure law, as proposed by the Conflicts of Interest Board. The law brings the City’s annual disclosure law into compliance with various State law mandates; creates a new form for filing by uncompensated members of policymaking City boards and commissions and by members, officers, and employees of City public authorities; and adds a minimal amount of required disclosure for current filers.
