INFORMATION: AB 1730 (Olsen) would require the Assembly and the Senate Rules Committees to provide each legislator with a monthly report of his or her office budget, and would require the legislator to publish the monthly budget report on his or her website. The bill would also prohibit either house of the Legislature from taking a vote on any bill until the bill, in its present form, has been made available to the public on an Internet Web site for at least 72 hours, unless the house dispenses with this requirement by a 2/3 vote.

POSITION: Support if amended to remove 2/3 vote requirement.
