SB 1336

SESSION: 2012

INFORMATION: SB 1336 (Yee) would require disclosure of the results of investigations into improper governmental activity by the State Auditor’s office, by California State University investigators and by city auditors’ investigators.  Under existing law, ostensibly to protect whistleblowers and witnesses, none of these investigative outcomes need be revealed.  This bill would end that secrecy but protect the identities of whistleblowers, interviewed witnesses and accused persons found to be innocent of any wrongdoing.  The bill is in response to frustrated efforts by San Diego watchdog Mel Shapiro to get details on several years’ worth of city auditor’s investigations into complaints against city officials.

POSITION: Support
