In response to recent legislation regarding the posing of campaign reporting statements and local jurisdiction’s switch to electronic filings in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Vacaville City Council will consider amending city code to require paperless filings of campaign disclosure statements at its Tuesday meeting.

According to a staff report by City Clerk Michelle Thornbrugh, the item is in response to Assembly Bill 571 by Assemblyman Kevin Mullin, D-Daly City, which went into effect Jan. 1. Among other things, the legislation requires Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) election reporting statements to be posted on jurisdictions’ websites within 72 hours of each applicable filing deadline.[ more]
