2013 Senate Bill 661: Increase political contributions limits (Senate Roll Call 533)
facebook  twitter 

Passed 20 to 18 in the Senate on November 14, 2013, to increase the maximum campaign contributions allowed by state election law, index these to inflation, and require additional finance reports from candidates. The bill would also establish that third party "issue ads" that do not expressly advocate the election of a candidate or issue need not include a disclosure of who paid for the ad, and allow the Republican and Democratic caucuses in the legislature to raise and spend money promoting their preferred candidates in primary elections.
