California Government Code
Sec. § 6252.5


Notwithstanding the definition of member of the public in Section 6252, an elected member or officer of any state or local agency is entitled to access to public records of that agency on the same basis as any other person. Nothing in this section shall limit the ability of elected members or officers to access public records permitted by law in the administration of their duties.
This section does not constitute a change in, but is declaratory of, existing law.
