    Philadelphia to expand ethics rules to include same-sex partners

    Philadelphia is expected to approve expanded ethics rules that would extend expectations to same-sex partners of city employees.

    KYW reports City Councilman-at-large Bill Green has introduced a bill written by Mayor Michael Nutter’s administration that would change the city ethics code to apply to city employees’ same-sex partners — the way it does to spouses of employees.

    Same-sex partners already qualify for benefits like health insurance, but have never had to follow rules like the one that prohibits lobbying on behalf of a spouse.
