In light of the current and ongoing situation with COVID-19, the Fair Political Practices Commission urges those interested to take advantage of the public portal option available for all Commission meetings. This portal, launched last year to provide the public with more ways to participate, allows anyone to take part in the Commission meeting from anywhere around the state.

During any Commission meeting you can use the Public Comment Forum to offer comments in real time to the Commission. And, you may always submit a written comment by email to commasst@fppc.ca.gov ahead of any meeting. All meetings are open to the public but in keeping with recommendations of public health officials, the FPPC strongly encourages this remote participation.

The March 19, 2020 Commission meeting will take place as scheduled unless health officials deem it necessary to cancel. We will continue to advise the public of any changes or cancellations.
