California Lawmakers Pass Campaign Finance Bill
The Legislature presented a bill to Gov. Gavin Newsom relating to online filing and disclosure of specific statements, reports, and other documents.
Assembly Bill 2151 requires a local government agency to post on its internet website, within 72 hours of the applicable filing deadline, a copy of any specified statement, report, or other document required by Chapter 4 of the Political Reform Act of 1974 filed with the agency in paper format.
In addition, the statement, report, or other document must be made available for four years from the date of the election associated with the filing.
Finally, if signed by the governor, the bill becomes effective January 1, 2021.
