FPPC to Consider Changes to Behested Payments
The Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) has announced that on October 21 the Commission will consider proposed regulations concerning behested payment reporting.
The regulation seeks to shed light on a growing problem occurring in California elections, large donations being made to candidate-controlled charities in place of trackable political contributions.
The regulation, prospectively codified as § 18424.3, would increase the reporting requirements to the behested payment report.
The regulations will require more detailed disclosures as to the name of the payor and the “single source” of the behested payment.
