(a) For the purposes of Government Code sections 87202 and 87302:
(1) The date of assuming office is the date that a person either:
(A) Is authorized to serve in the position, as by being sworn in; or
(B) Except in the case of an elected official who is required to be sworn into office, begins to perform the duties of the position, as by making, participating in making, or attempting to use his or her official position to influence a governmental decision; whichever occurs earlier.
(2) For the purposes of Government Code sections 87202(a) and 87302(b), the date that a person is appointed or nominated to an office is the date the appointment or nomination is submitted to the confirming body.
(b) The date that a person permanently leaves office, for the purposes of Government Code sections 87204 and 87302, is the date that the person is no longer authorized to perform the duties of the office, and stops performing those duties, including making, participating in making, or attempting to use his or her official position to influence any governmental decision. For purposes of this subdivision, a person shall not be deemed to have left office permanently because he or she is on a leave of absence or serves as an intermittent employee. However, a person shall be deemed to have left office permanently if the person merely receives compensation for accrued leave credits.
(c) Every person who holds an office specified in Government Code sections 87200 or 87302, subdivision (a), as an alternate or as a designee, shall be required to disclose his or her economic interests in the same manner as any other person holding the office.
