1. Call to order and establishment of a quorum.
2. Public Comment.
This portion of the meeting is reserved for comment on items not on the agenda. Under the Bagley-Keene Act, the Commission cannot act on items raised during public comment, but may respond briefly to statements made or questions posed; request clarification; or refer the item to staff.
3. Finding pursuant to Government Code section 11125.4(c) relative to holding special meeting on less than 10 days notice.
This meeting has been called and noticed pursuant to the special meeting provision of the Bagley-Keene Open Meeting Act, which allows for a meeting on less than 10 days notice under certain circumstances, including consideration of pending litigation and consideration of issuance of a legal opinion. Based on the immediate need for the Commission to discuss pending litigation and the issuance of a legal opinion, the Commission finds that it would create a substantial hardship to delay this meeting, and so has properly called and noticed this special meeting pursuant to applicable law.
4. Pending Litigation (Gov. Code §11126(e)(1)). Deliberation upon:
Administrative Hearing: In the Matter of Bill Berryhill, Tom Berryhill, Bill Berryhill For Assembly - 2008, Berryhill For Assembly 2008, Stanislaus Republican Central Committee (State Acct.), and San Joaquin County Republican Central Committee/Calif. Republican Victory Fund (FPPC No. 10/828).
