Finding Statements of Economic Interests Online at the Fair Political Practices Commission Website

By Michael Reiter, Attorney at Law

The Fair Political Practices Commission website has a page (which is remarkably difficult to find) which has state and local Form 700s, the Statements of Economic Interests.  There are local (city council member and mayoral) filings for 2010 at the site, but as of now, no 2011 (filed in 2012) filings at the state site.  You’ll have to go to the local entity to pick up a 2011 form for city council members, or other local public agency fillers.

The site gives this information:

One of the key themes of the Political Reform Act of 1974, is that documents such as SEIs and campaign statements are filed at the most decentralized level. This made sense at a time when it was easier to walk down to the City Clerk’s office, but with the Internet, there is greater access to these documents if they are maintained on a single website. The Commission hopes you find this resource useful. Please continue to check back as we update these pages.

Due to privacy concerns and out of an abundance of caution, the SEIs posted on the Commission’s website have the address, telephone and signature blocks redacted. Copies of the original forms are available for review or duplication.
