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 these 2 reports to annual
reports. 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 a newspaper.
