This is the last week for Louisville Metro Council members to submit changes to a proposed ethics ordinance.

The measure would redefine what Metro employees and elected officials are allowed to do in terms of political actions and commercial endorsements. It spent months in committee and was postponed by the full council twice, with some members saying the ordinance was too broad.

Seventh District Councilman Ken Fleming co-sponsored the bill. He says he and Council President David Tandy will take suggestions from their colleagues through Thursday, then start making changes.

“He and I are going to sit here and we’re going to go through what the people that we know are familiar with in this area and consult with other people who are familiar with people in this area to bring someone in here to help us out,” he says.

The ordinance is set to go before the full council again on February 12th.
