(This amendment provides an additional $40,000 GF in the second year to allow the Council to be fully staffed in order to discharge its responsibilities. Each year, over 11,000 executive branch officers, judges, local government officials, school board members and General Assembly members file with the Council.

In addition, the total appropriation in FY 2018 includes a one-time additional amount of $150,000 to restore funding that was administratively transferred on a one-time basis from FY 2018 to FY 2017 to pay for system upgrades to facilitate the online filing of Statements of Economic Interests, as required by law.)
