    Notice of Meeting

    The Little Hoover Commission will hold a business meeting on Monday, Sept. 27, at 1 p.m. to discuss whether the Commission will hold hearings to study whether California's recall system should be reformed.

    "As an independent, bipartisan oversight agency charged with finding ways to make state government better, our Commission can bring a unique perspective to discussions of recall reform," said Commission Chair Pedro Nava. "We will be meeting so that our Commissioners -- who bring a wide range of experience and outlook -- can have a vigorous discussion about whether we should study critical questions facing the state: Should the recall system be changed? And if so, how?"

    The meeting will be conducted via Zoom, under the provisions of the Bagley-Keene Act as revised by Governor’s Executive Order N-29-20. Members of the public are encouraged to listen to the meeting by joining online or by phone. To join via phone, call toll free from the U.S. by dialing (888) 788-0099.
