Report 2010-036: Indian Gaming Special Distribution Fund: Local Governments Continue to Have Difficulty Justifying Distribution Fund Grants (Release Date: February 2011)

Recommendation #23 To: Amador County

To help ensure that they meet the grant requirements established in the Government Code, counties should require benefit committee filing officers to avail themselves of the free training provided by the FPPC so that the filing officers are aware of and meet their responsibilities under the political reform act. Counties should also adhere to FPPC guidelines for notifying filers of the need to submit statements of economic interests.

Annual Follow-Up Agency Response From October 2014

All Committee members are encouraged to utilize the free training. The free training was discussed in the meeting, and a memo was sent to each member detailing the training. The minutes and memo are being sent a supporting documentation. The LBC will continue to abide by all State requirements for training required by the FPPC.

Annual Follow-Up Agency Response From November 2012

A majority of Local Community Benefits Committee members serve in some capacity of County or City Government and are made aware of the responsibility to submit statements of economic interest by staff. In addition the Clerk of the LCBC notifies each member of the need to submit their form by the deadline. Some members have attended training relative to FPPC guidelines and statements of economic interests at conferences and trainings attended throughout the year, however to my knowledge have not attended the free training.

The Clerk of the Amador County Local Community Benefits Committee will make all members aware of the free training provided by the Fair Political Practices Commission.
