The California Political Reform Act (Government Code Sections 81000-91014)

The California Political Reform Act requires many public officials and employees to file public, personal financial disclosure reports known as Statements of Economic Interests.  Under the act, cities are required to adopt and implement a separate Conflict of Interest Code.  Designated employees, board/commission/committee members and elected officials must file Statement of Economic Interest with the City Clerk's Office. The designated filers and the types of economic interests that are required to be disclosed are listed in the the City of Carlsbad's Conflict of Interest Code.
