The Commission has established two separate two-person standing advisory committees, the Budget and Personnel Committee and the Law and Policy Committee, to allow greater participation by individual Commissioners in making recommendations to the full Commission. In recognition of the public’s interest in the meetings of these committees, the Commission has directed the committees to allow the public to monitor committee deliberations, whenever possible, by publishing a two-day notice of the meeting and allowing callers to listen to the proceeding with a call-in telephone number. (See Commission Regulation 18308.1(d)(2)(E).)

As two-person advisory committees, Bagley Keene Open Meeting Requirements (Government Code Sections 11120 - 11132) do not apply to the committee meetings, and the committees are not currently soliciting public comment during their meetings. However, all public comments regarding the proposed agenda items are welcomed and encouraged prior to the meeting. If you would like to comment on an agenda item, you may email your comments to the Commission Assistant at CommAsst@fppc.ca.gov. Any comments submitted prior to the meeting will be provided to the committee members for consideration at the meeting.
