FPPC Proposes New Rule Changes
The Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) has announced that on November 18 the commission will consider proposed regulations concerning electronic signatures and lobbying record keeping.
The FPPC seeks to clarify an “original” filing can be made with an electronic signature.
Additionally, the FPPC wants to define the types of records lobbyists, lobbying firms, lobbyist employers, and persons spending $5,000 or more must maintain.
The FPPC will consider expanding the number of records that must be kept and the breadth of detail the records must contain.
