Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

Thirty-one state lawmakers have agreed to pay a grand total of more than $9,000 in fines for failing to disclose concert tickets, pricey meals and other gifts from interest groups.

The individual proposed fines, which range from $200 to $600, are the result of the state political watchdog agency's review of whether required gift disclosures by state legislators matched up with reports submitted by the interest groups. In all, the Fair Political Practices Commission found that lawmakers failed to report 66 gifts worth $8,500.
