Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

The Fair Political Practices Commission is investigating whether two state legislators -- Republican Assemblymen Tom Berryhill and Bill Berryhill -- violated campaign contribution limits by funneling large sums of cash through central party committees.

The news of the probe comes on the heels of a California Watch investigation that showed how party committees are used to route large sums of money to campaigns, circumventing contribution limits set for individual donors.
