Gov. Jerry Brown signed Assembly Bill 249 on October 7, which amends the Political Reform Act.

The bill requires campaign advertisements to identify the name of the committee paying for the advertisement, as well as clearly displaying the top three contributors to that committee.

The bill also expands disclosure requirements for mass electronic mailings and telephone calls. The bill is effective immediately.
