Agranistas Fire Ordinance

Proposed law takes aim at political consultants, advisers and the media

The ordinance fails to define what is a "direct or indirect economic interest." Freedom Communications, the company that owns the Register, is headquartered in Irvine. Its newspapers are sold in Irvine. Irvine World News, founded by the Irvine Co. but now published by Freedom, is distributed freely throughout the community on Thursdays. It would be open to interpretation whether the Register or World News opining about Irvine politics would therefore constitute an "indirect economic interest."
