Bill Changes Disclosure Thresholds for California Public Officials
The State Assembly has passed Assembly Bill 10 and sent it to the governor.
This bill contains provisions affecting elected officials’ disclosure of financial investments and conflicts of interest. It requires public officials to provide more detailed information about their business dealings and investments.
It also raises the thresholds used to decide if an official’s investments create a conflict of interest.
AB 10 is linked to Senate Bill 21, which also passed and has been sent to the governor. In order for these bills to become law, both must be signed.
