In 2006, in the first change to its authority since 1989, the Board was charged
with the administration and enforcement of a newly enacted prohibition on
lobbyists making gifts to public servants. Local Law 16 of 2006 prohibited
lobbyists from making gifts to public servants of the City and provided for
civil fines for violations of the law. As directed in the legislation, the Board
promulgated rules interpreting the law's provisions. Below, you will find the
text of law and other related documents.
