Today, please call the Governor at (916) 445-2841 and ask the following:

“I urge Governor Brown to veto section 4 of Senate Bill 71 and Assembly Bill 76 (specifically section 6252.8 to the Goverment Code) to restore effectiveness to the Public Records Act.”

Senate will pursue constitutional amendment. Will hold Assembly's amendments re CPRA until they hear of noncompliance by a city or county.

@proTemSteinberg said constitutional amendment will be on floor next week. "We want to look at what the law should be." #CPRA

See Sac Bee!: Battered by criticism from open government activists, the Assembly will vote Thursday to undo a budget bill that made some provisions of the state's Public Records Act optional for local governments.

In a statement Wednesday, Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez said the Assembly will move Senate Bill 71 without the records act changes requested by Gov. Jerry Brown .


"To be clear, this means that the California Public Records Act will remain intact without any changes as part of the budget - consistent with the Assembly's original action," Pérez said.

Does UC ask the state to reimburse UC for costs related to CPRA?
