LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 334, Obernolte. California Republican Party: county central committees.
Existing law establishes the political party organization of the California Republican Party. Existing law authorizes a county central committee of the party to elect a member to the committee to replace a member whose term is expiring at every presidential primary election. Existing law authorizes a county central committee of the party, in accordance with its rules and regulations, to determine the number, the district allocation, and the manner of election of its members at any time by holding a caucus or convention, or by using any other method approved by the committee. Existing law requires the members of a county central committee of the party to assume office and hold their first meeting during the month of December or January following a general election, and provides that a member shall hold office for a 2-year term commencing with that first meeting. Existing law provides that a member of a county central committee of the party may serve after the expiration date of the member’s term until the election or selection of the member’s replacement.
This bill would delete the provisions described above relating to the date on which a committee member assumes office, the date on which a committee is required to hold its first meeting, and the length of a committee member’s term of office.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO
