The Political Reform Act requires candidates and committees to file campaign statements and reports so that voters are fully informed about contributions and expenditures in the elections. This information is reported on forms that are approved by the FPPC.
The Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) is a non-partisan commission that has primary responsibility for the impartial and effective administration of the Political Reform Act. The Act regulates campaign financing, conflicts of interest, lobbying, and governmental ethics. The Commission’s objectives are to ensure that public officials act in a fair and unbiased manner in the governmental decision-making process, to promote transparency in government, and to foster public trust in the political system.
