SACRAMENTO – After numerous reports of inappropriate behavior during raucous events sponsored by the California Contract Cities Association, Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia introduced legislation limiting how the associations- funded by monies from the local governments or special districts -can expend funds.  AB 315 limits the associations of local agencies or districts from using funds paid from local agencies for purposes that are not for lobbying the Legislature or Congress or strictly educational activities.
