No more free tickets
The California Fair Political Practices Commission has voted to restrict the number of tickets city officials can receive for events at city-owned venues. Although the rules change came in response to complaints in Anaheim, it will affect the city of Pasadena, where the mayor and city council members receive bundles of tickets to the annual Rose Bowl Game and Rose Parade. In the past, the tickets were treated as having no value. Now they will have to be reported at face value and officials will be limited to $420 worth of tickets a year.
