Legislation to increase government transparency sponsored by assembly member Alyson Huber passed the Assembly Appropriations Committee with bipartisan support today. The bills have now passed all necessary Assembly committees and will move to the Assembly floor next.

“AB 1181 and AB 1274 are good reforms that will help make campaign contributions and lobbying activity details more accessible to the public, not just insiders,” said Huber, who represents the state's 10th assembly district. “Both Democratic and Republican legislators recognize the need for these reforms and more transparency, and I look forward to moving these bills closer to the Governor’s desk.”

AB 1181 would require all state candidate committees, ballot measure committees and slate mail organizations to file contributors online with the Secretary of State’s office.

AB 1274 would address the need to easily identify who is lobbying on a specific issue by requiring the Secretary of State to display online a breakdown of all lobbying interests seeking to influence each proposed law. This list would be updated quarterly.
