City of San Francisco Elected Officials Prohibited from Establishing Candidate Controlled General Purpose Committees
Effective September 3, 2016, city elected officials in San Francisco will be prohibited from controlling candidate controlled general purpose committees.
The goal of the new ordinance is to stop elected officials from establishing such committees to use as slush funds for unlimited contributions.
Candidates controlling candidate controlled general purpose committees will be required to return, use, or dispose of all committee funds within 90 days of taking office.
