Baltimore County employees would still be allowed to work for the state as well under a revised ethics reform package introduced Monday by the County Council.

County Executive Kevin Kamenetz had proposed barring employees from working for the state but dropped that requirement from the legislation after County Council members expressed concern that it was too restrictive, said Kamenetz’s chief of staff, Don Mohler. For instance, Mohler said, the prohibition could have prevented employees from teaching part-time at public colleges.

The legislation would still prohibit County Council members from working for the state.

The bill also addresses financial disclosure for public officials, conflict-of-interest rules and other issues. Council members are set to discuss the measure at a work session Dec. 13.
