The state’s Fair Political Practices Commission will rule this Thursday in Sacramento on fines for state legislators who the commission contends failed to report gifts they received in 2008. Local legislators on the list:

  • Assemblyman Martin Garrick, R-Carlsbad, proposed fine: $600.
  • Assemblywoman Lori Saldaña, D-San Diego, proposed fine: $600.
  • State Sen. Christine Kehoe, D-San Diego, proposed fine: $400.
  • Assemblywoman Mary Salas, D-Chula Vista, proposed fine: $200.

Here’s an AP story from last month on the gifts and Saldaña’s response to me.
