FAIR POLITICAL PRACTICES COMMISSION
The mission of the FAIR POLITICAL PRACTICES COMMISSION (FPPC) is to promote the integrity of representative state and local government in California through fair, impartial interpretation, and enforcement of political campaign, lobbying, and conflict of interest laws. The Fair Political Practices Commission was created by the Political Reform Act of 1974 by a ballot initiative passed by California voters in 1974 as Proposition 9. It is the duty of the Fair Political Practices Commission to provide administration of and enforce the Political Reform Act. It is the intent of the Fair Political Practices Commission to prevent conflicts of interests by 1) requiring discloser of public official's economic interests, and 2) disqualifying public officials from participating in government decisions when a conflict of interest has been deemed.
