SACRAMENTO – Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez (D-Los Angeles) made the following announcement today regarding his directive to post Assembly expenditures on the Assembly’s website:
“As I have previously announced, I have asked Assembly Rules Chair Nancy Skinner to form a task force to study our options to modernize the Assembly’s records policies. I am eager to receive the results of their work when we reconvene for next year’s legislative session. I have also listened to concerns from members in both parties about the need to modernize how the Assembly maintains and shares information.
“I believe that we can take steps now to increase the accessibility of information as to how the Assembly operates. To that end, I have consulted with Assemblymember Skinner and we have directed the Assembly Rules Committee to begin posting the most up-to-date Assembly expenditures through July on our website. This information will be available on our website beginning at 4 p.m. today, and we will continue to ensure that this public information is made easily accessible to the people of California.”
