The Act provides that all state and local officials, who foreseeably may materially affect
private economic interests through the exercise of their public duties, must disclose such
interests. Some persons are required to file disclosure statements because of the positions they
hold and others are required to file because of their job duties. The disclosure requirements for
constitutional officers, members of the Legislature, county supervisors, city council members,
mayors, judges, and other high ranking officials are set forth in Government Code sections
87200-87210. These individuals are sometimes referred to as “87200 Filers.” All other officials
who make or participate in making decisions are covered by Conflict of Interest Codes adopted
pursuant to Government Code sections 87300-87313. (The promulgation and administration of
Conflict of Interest Codes is discussed in Section F of this Chapter.) Under section 87200 et
seq., high ranking state and local officials must disclose all income, gifts, interests in real
property, and investments located in or doing business in their jurisdiction. The disclosure
requirements for all other officials depend upon the individual’s power to affect financial
interests through his or her official position.
