The California Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) has been given expanded authority to deal with conflict of interest violations under Governmant Code section 1090 et. seq.
On October 8, 2013, Governor Jerry Brown signed AB 1090, authored by Assemblyman Paul Fong (D-Cupertino).
AB 1090 expands FPPC authority in the, commonly-referred to, 1090 violation arena.
Under the legislation, the FPPC can now bring administrative and civil enforcement actions against violators.
