The 25-member Fair Political Practices Commission met on Monday to begin reviewing the state's law governing political donations and lobbying activity. The task force has been charged with drafting recommendations by the end of the year but the proposed changes must be approved by the legislature. Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger endorses the commission's work and is calling for more transparency in politics. What might this review accomplish? What changes would you like to see in Sacramento?
