A Statement of Economic Interest (FORM 700) is a state form on which state and local government officials publicly disclose their personal assets and income that may be materially affected by their official acts.
In April 1993, the Board of Supervisors adopted an ordinance which requires lobbyists, who are compensated for communicating with any County official in order to influence official action, to register with the County of Los Angeles.
State law requires that the Board of Supervisors conduct an election to fill vacant or expired seats on the Los Angeles County Employees Retirement Association (LACERA) Board of Investments and Board of Retirement.
On March 7, 2006, the Board of Supervisors adopted Chapter 2.175 of the Los Angeles County Code, Postgovernment Employment and Lobbying Activities of County Officials (Postgovernment Ordinance).
