California Bills to Increase Transparency at State Boards and Commissions
A bill prohibiting communications between members of California’s Coastal Commission and lobbyists during the 24 hour period before commission hearings has passed in committee. The Committee on Elections and Redistricting approved Assembly Bill 2002, getting lawmakers one step closer to making state commissions more transparent.
AB 2002 is one of six bills currently in the legislature aimed at shedding light on state boards and commissions. All of the proposed bills must still pass floor votes in both houses.
