arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Political Reform Act (Gov. Code ¤ 81000 et seq.) requires state and local government agencies to adopt and promulgate conflict of interest codes. The Fair Political Practices Commission has adopted a regulation (Cal. Code Regs., tit. 2., ¤ 18730), which contains the terms of a standard conflict of interest code, which can be incorporated by reference, and which may be amended by the Fair Political Practices Commission to conform to amendments in the Political Reform Act after public notice and hearings. Therefore, the terms of California Code of Regulations, title 2, section 18730 and any amendments to it duly adopted by the Fair Political Practices Commission are hereby incorporated by reference and, along with the attached appendix in which officials and employees are designated and disclosure categories are set forth, constitute the conflict of interest code of the Fair Employment and Housing Council.

Designated employees shall file statements of economic interests with their agency. Upon receipt of the statements of the Council members, the agency shall make and retain a copy and forward the original of these statements to the Fair Political Practices Commission. The statements for all other designated positions shall be retained with the agency and made available for public inspection and reproduction upon request. (Gov. Code, ¤ 81008.)

Such determination shall include a description of the consultant's duties and, based upon that description, a statement of the extent of disclosure requirements. The Chairperson's determination is a public record and shall be retained for public inspection at offices of the Fair Employment and Housing Council. Nothing herein excuses any such consultant from any other provision of this Conflict of Interest Code.
