LAO and IEC
The Legislative Action Organization (LAO) is a voluntary, unincorporated, non-profit political action committee. Its purpose is to protect our pensions and other benefits by educating the public and legislators about issues of concern. It raises and disburses funds to help elect candidates to the California Legislature and State constitutional offices that are likely to be favorable to the legislative goals of RPEA.
The Independent Expenditure Committee (IEC) is a voluntary, unincorporated, non-profit committee authorized by Proposition 208 (1996) and Proposition 34 (2000). It raises and disburses funds to either support or oppose associations, coalitions, initiatives, constitutional amendments or other legal actions that would affect our members' benefits.
