Current law requires each county to publish a report about its expenses and contracts (expense report), the salaries of public employees and officials in the county (salary report), and the financial statements for each fund kept by the county treasurer (financial statement).
The expense report is published monthly and the salary report is published twice per year. The bill changes the salary report to an annual report. Commencing January 1, 2020, the bill allows a county to publish the expense report, the salary report, and the financial statement on a county website with a link to the report published in at least one legal newspaper.
