The Political Reform Act requires candidates to file campaign statements disclosing contributions received and expenditures made. The statutory requirements of the Political Reform Act are contained in Sections 81000-91015 of the California Government Code and are enforced by the Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC). Therefore, questions and requests for clarification should be directed to the FPPC.
