Current Bill Summary

SB 864 - Current law prohibits local officials from using public funds to advocate the adoption or defeat of any initiative. This act extends that prohibition to state officials. It also prohibits any public employee from acting on behalf of or in opposition to an initiative during working hours, unless the employee is on leave, and prohibits legislators from using public funds for mass mailings advocating the passage or defeat of an initiative. A mass mailing would be defined by the committee in each chamber responsible for administrative functions.
