FPPC Interested Persons Meeting; Disclosure of Political Activity by LLC’s
Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) staff will hold an interested persons meeting on Monday, April 20, at 10:00 a.m.
The purpose of the meeting is to solicit public input regarding legislative and regulatory proposals to enhance disclosure of political activity by limited liability companies (LLCs) in California elections.
Current law enables LLCs to make contributions or independent expenditures solely in the name of the LLC without disclosing any information, or even a way to determine, the source of the funds expended by the LLC and individuals responsible for operating the LLC.
The FPPC is interested in increasing the amount of information available to the public concerning political activity by LLCs.
Regulatory proposals will be considered for adoption or amendment on or after the May 21 meeting.
