Earlier this summer, the Fair Political Practices Commission in partnership with California Forward (CA Fwd) and the University of California released for public comment the first draft revision of the Political Reform Act. The goals of the Political Reform Act Revision Project are to revise the 42-year old law to improve accessibility, compliance, and enforcement without making substantive policy changes.

To date, the Project has received numerous comments and recommendations from interested parties who have expressed great enthusiasm and dedicated significant time and expertise in ensuring the success of a revised Act. We recognize that this election season is a very busy time for many, and so to ensure all Californians have an opportunity to fully review Draft 1 and provide their comments, the FPPC will be extending the first comment period by a month to October 31. All comments received by that date will be considered for inclusion in the second draft revision.

Below is the new calendar for the project, taking into account constraints dictated by the legislative process and timeline:

August 3 – October 31: Comment Period 1
November 1 – December 4: FPPC incorporates comments/recommendations.
December 5 – December 30: Comment Period 2 (final technical review)
