California Governor Signs Bill to Modify Contribution Definition and Behested Payment Provisions
Gov. Jerry Brown signed Assembly Bill 867 into law, recasting various provisions of the Political Reform Act regarding the definition of the term contribution.
The law moves the behested payment reporting requirements out of the definition of contribution, and instead places those requirements in the part of the campaign disclosure sections of the act.
Additionally, the law provides specific definitions for terms related to behested payments and the reporting of such payments. The law is effective January 1, 2018.
