Behested Payments Search

Below are links to reported contributions solicited by members of the Assembly, Senate and statewide elected officers. These payments are not considered campaign contributions or gifts, but are payments made at the "behest" of elected officials to be used for legislative, governmental or charitable purposes. While state law limits the amount of campaign contributions and gifts, there are no limits on these so-called "behested" payments.

State law only requires the reporting of "behested" payments if they total $5,000 or more per calendar year from a single source. There are no reporting requirements for payments up to $4,999.99. 

Officials must report the "behested" payments within 30 days of the date they are made. This information is updated on a regular basis. Copies of the full reports are available at the FPPC office in Sacramento, 428 J Street, Suite 600.
