Lobbyist Data - Expenditures - Hosting
Every expense made during the reporting period for the benefit of an official or employee of the City. These are different from other expenses or gifts -- other datasets in this series. These expenses are typically those that fall under the “reasonable hosting” provision of the City of Chicago ethics rules.
