1.     Ethics Training

On October 7, 2005, the Governor of California signed Assembly Bill No. 1234.   AB 1234 requires that if a local agency provides any type of compensation, salary, or stipend to, or reimburses the expenses of a member of its 'legislative body' (as that term is defined in California Government Code Section 54952), that local agency's officials must receive training in ethics.   AB 1234 requires that officials take a 2-hour ethics course every two years.    Below is a link to the Fair Political Practices Commision's website page regarding Ethics Training for local officials and an online Ethics Course.
