CLC Comments on Proposed Amendment to California Materiality Standard for Financial Conflicts of Interest


On January 15, 2019, the Campaign Legal Center submitted comments to Alice T. Germond, Chair of the California Fair Political Practices Commission on a proposed amendment to the materiality standard for financial interests in real property. While the proposed amendment intends to simplify the process of making materiality determinations in real property conflicts of interest, it may have unintended negative consequences.
