Political Action Committees
The CIPA Board of Directors authorized the creation of two political action committees which serve as an adjunct to CIPA's political activities in Sacramento and Washington, DC. While CIPA does not endorse candidates for any office, CIPAC - Federal and CIPAC - State may endorse and support candidates for local, state and Federal offices under the guidelines prescribed by state and federal election law and CIPAC Trustees. Producers, royalty owners, and service companies are encouraged to support both PACs annually to help bolster the mission and goals of the association. Contributions to CIPAC - Federal and CIPAC - State are not tax deductible on your state or federal income taxes.
Rod Eson, Foothill Energy LLC, is the chairman of both CIPAC - State and CIPAC - Federal.
