With the passage of Proposition 112 (SCA 32) on June 5, 1990, the voters have acknowledged their support for an ethics reform package that is tied to the creation of a Citizens Compensation Commission, which shall have the exclusive power to set the salaries and all fringe benefits, except retirement, for Members of the Legislature and other related state officers. It also prohibits Members and other elected state officers from receiving any honoraria and imposes restrictions on gifts, lobbying activity, and the sources of income of these officers.
