Santa Monica : Election Panel Abolished

February 13, 1986

The City Council gave final approval Tuesday to a law abolishing the city's Fair Election Practices Commission.

The commission was created to enforce city campaign laws, including limits on campaign contributions and spending. But some council members have said the commission had little regulatory power and did not have much business to conduct.

The commission was set up after the statewide Fair Political Practices Commission was formed in 1974. Only the city of Berkeley and Orange County have similar local campaign commissions still in operation.
