§ 7400. Conflict of Interest Code.
The Political Reform Act (Government Code Section 81000, et seq.) requires state and local government agencies to adopt and promulgate conflict of interest codes. The Fair Political Practices Commission has adopted a regulation (2 California Code of Regulations Section 18730) which contains the terms of a standard conflict of interest code and may be incorporated by reference in an agency's code. After public notice and hearing it may be amended by the Fair Political Practices Commission to conform to amendments in the Political Reform Act. Therefore, the terms of 2 California Code of Regulations Section 18730 and any amendments to it duly adopted by the Fair Political Practices Commission are hereby incorporated by reference. This regulation and the attached Appendix designating officials and employees and establishing disclosure categories, shall constitute the Conflict of Interest Code of the Department of Rehabilitation (Agency).
Designated positions shall file statements of economic interests with the Agency. Upon receipt of the statements of the Director, the agency shall make and retain a copy and forward the original to the Fair Political Practices Commission. Statements for all other designated positions will be retained by the Agency and made available for public inspection and reproduction, upon request.
