Political Reform Act 40th Anniversary

Political Reform Act 40th Anniversary

Sacramento -- 1974 is an infamous year when the Watergate scandal brought down Richard Nixon's presidency exposing extreme corruption in politics, government, elected officials and their cronies.  

Desiring a transparent government, California's lawmakers enacted the Political Reform Act of 1974 creating the Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) that, according to current Chairperson Jodi Remke, "focuses meaningful reform through smart, effective disclosure" of political contributions, expenditures and lobbying.

To commemorate this landmark legislation's 40th anniversary, UOP's McGeorge School of Law sponsored an extensive group of legal panelists to discuss political reform issues and accomplishments titled, "A Dynamic Look at the Past, Present and Future."  Organizing this informative event is The Capital Center for Public Law and Policy.

Last night, while having a small dinner party, I listened in on a conversation between my dear friends, Nancy and Max, as they discussed the joys of living alone.

Car crashes 6 feet into Elk Grove preschool


Cosumnes Fire Department had to extract a driver who drove their car 6 feet into an Elk Grove preschool Tuesday morning.

The accident happened at 7:30 a.m. at a Phoenix School at 3050 Babson Drive. A parent who dropped off their kids hit the gas instead of the brakes and the car went into the child-care facility with kids inside according to Elk Grove police spokesman Chris Trim.

Two kids were transported with minor injuries.

Elk Grove police are investigating the cause of the accident. This story will be updated once more information is available.
