FPPC Providing Ethics and Campaign Finance Enforcement for Local Governments
The Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) has unveiled a template contract for cities, counties, and districts allowing the FPPC to enforce local ethics and campaign finance laws.
The FPPC voted earlier this year to pursue agreements with localities to bring enhanced transparency and cost savings to local governments.
The template contract spells out the scope of work including advising, informing, auditing, and enforcing any local campaign finance and ethics ordinances, and the amount paid to the FPPC for such services.
The FPPC will ensure candidates and campaigns are following the rules and public officials are adhering to ethical standards.
Additionally, the FPPC will provide a service already in place so local governments don’t have to create their own.
