financial disclosure statements

California Fair Political Practices Commission
The California Fair Political Practices Commission in 2010 began putting the statements of economic interests/form 700s for state elected officials (statewide constitutional officers and state legislators) and members of county boards of supervisors and city councils in a searchable database on its website.
The forms also also filed with local agencies, but very few of them make the forms available online.
The FPPC also put online "behest payments" - donations organizations make to other organizations at the behest of state Asssembly, Senate or statewide elected officials to be used for legislative, governmental or charitable purposes.
Free Tickets to Sporting Events and Concerts
The FPPC in September 2010 enacted a rule requiring elected officials to disclose on the Internet free tickets they receive to sproting events and concerts.
The disclosure will be on the website for the agency for which the elected official works.
