Prop 54

California Legislative Transparency Act

This is a good government act to prohibit the Legislature from passing any bill unless it has been in print and published on the Internet for at least 72 hours before the vote, except in cases of public emergency. It would also require the Legislature to make and post audiovisual recordings of all open proceedings, except closed session proceedings, and allows any person to record legislative proceedings by audio or video means to use for a legitimate purpose.

Bottomline: The Chamber SUPPORTS this proposition because these changes will increase transparency in our state government and give the public more time to weigh in on last minute changes to legislation.
