REPEALING ORDINANCE NO. 773
WHEREAS, the people of the State of California have enacted the Political Reform Act of 1996 at the general election of November, 1996; and
WHEREAS, in order to advance the purposes for which the Political Reform Act of 1996 was adopted by the voters and to assist in reducing the significant sums of money being spent on local political campaigns, it is desirable to establish voluntary expenditure ceilings for candidates and controlled committees of candidates for Riverside County offices, as permitted by California Government Code Section 85400; and
WHEREAS, on January 6, 1998, the Federal Court found a substantial portion of Proposition 208 unconstitutional and enjoined the State Fair Political Practices Commission from enforcing any of the provisions of Proposition 208 pending further order of the Court; and

NOW, THEREFORE, the Board of Supervisors of the County of Riverside, State of California, Ordains as follows:
Section 1. Ordinance No. 773 is hereby repealed in its entirety.
