Update on the Political Reform Act Revision Project

January 6, 2017 - After a year of outreach, collaboration and edits, we were excited to publicly release Draft 2 of the Revised Political Reform Act in early December 2016, requesting any additional comments by December 31st. The comments submitted to date have proven to be invaluable in meeting the goals of the project, and we encourage your ongoing participation.

While the public comment deadlines were established for logistical reasons associated with the Legislature’s bill deadlines, all comments from stakeholders are still welcome and will be considered. It’s also important to note that there will be ample opportunity for additional comments as the proposal moves through the Legislature. In the meantime, Commission staff will continue to accept comments submitted to pracomment@fppc.ca.gov or at our partner’s website at http://www.cafwd.org/pra.

Commission staff is currently working with legislative staff and the Office of Legislative Counsel to prepare the revised PRA language for bill introduction. We will notify you when a bill is introduced and how to track its progress through the Legislature. We will also continue to send regular updates throughout the year to keep all interested persons informed of any other developments on the project.

Thank you for your continued interest in this important project. With your help and support, we believe the revision project will serve as a model for other states and keep California at the forefront of campaign finance and governmental ethics.  

If you have any questions or comments about the project, please reach out to Phillip Ung, Director of Legislative and External Affairs, at pung@fppc.ca.gov or 916-322-7635.
