Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

                     Section 1. Paragraphs (g) and (h) of subdivision 3 of section 3-702 of the administrative code of the city of New York are amended, and a new paragraph (i) is added to such subdivision, to read as follows:

(g) contributions from lobbyists or other persons required to be included in a statement of registration filed pursuant to section 3-213(c)(1) or section 3-213(d). The board shall rely on the database maintained by the city clerk pursuant to section 3-221 or such other information known to the board to determine whether a contribution is not matchable based on the contributor's status as a lobbyist or person required to be included in a statement of registration filed pursuant to section 3-213; [and]

(h) contributions from contributors subject to the limitations of subdivision one-a of section 3-703 of this chapter; and

(i) contributions for which any person subject to the limitations of subdivision one-a of section 3-703 of this chapter acted as an intermediary.

                     § 2. This local law takes effect immediately, except that paragraph (i) of subdivision 3 of section 3-702 of the administrative code of the city of New York shall not apply to any contributions received prior to the effective date of this local law.
