Orange County Approves Measure to Employ FPPC
The county has passed a proposal to employ the Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) for monitoring and enforcement of county ethics laws. However, even though Measure E passed with 56.5 percent of the vote, the FPPC does not currently have the authority to contract with the county.
Recent grand jury reports recommended the establishment of an ethics commission for Orange County and the last grand jury specifically recommended against hiring the FPPC. If a contract is authorized by the Legislature, Orange will become the second county behind San Bernardino to employ the FPPC.
