SENATE BILL NO. 406

AS AMENDED BY SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1

AN ACT TO AMEND CHAPTER 417, VOLUME 67, LAWS OF DELAWARE AND CHAPTER 58, TITLE 29 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO THE CODE OF CONDUCT FOR LOCAL GOVERNMENTAL UNITS.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF DELAWARE (Two—thirds of all members elected to each House thereof concurring therein):

Section 1. Amend Chapter 417, Volume 67, Laws of Delaware by deleting Section 2 in its entirety and by inserting in lieu thereof the following:

"Section 2. It is the desire of the General Assembly that all

counties, municipalities and towns adopt code of conduct legislation at least as stringent as this act to apply to their employees and elected and appointed officials. Subchapter I, Chapter 58 of Title 29 shall apply to any county, municipality or town and the employees and elected and appointed officials thereof which has not enacted such legislation by January 23, 1993. No code of conduct legislation shall be deemed sufficient to exempt any county, municipality or town from the purview of Subchapter I, Chapter 58 of Title 29 unless the code of conduct has been submitted to the State Ethics Commission and determined by a majority vote thereof to be at least as stringent as Subchapter I, Chapter 58, Title 29. Any change to an approved code of conduct must similarly be approved by the State Ethics Commission to continue the exemption from Subchapter I, Chapter 58, Title 29."

Approved July 22, 1992
