Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC)
The FPPC is the State agency that interprets and enforces the Political Reform Act. The Political Reform Act contains California's ethics and election laws, and includes regulations on campaign finance, financial conflicts of interest, and gifts and honoraria given to public officials and candidates. FPPC Rules & Regluations
Although the City Attorney’s Office may provide information on State law as it relates to ethics and election laws, the FPPC is ultimately responsible for interpreting its rules. Relying on advice from the City Attorney's Office is not a defense in an inquiry on whether State law has been violated.
The FPPC provides advice on the requirements of the Political Reform Act through its Advice Line at 1-866-ASK-FPPC (1-866-275-3772) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
