Campaign finance disclosure; statements of organization; petty cash funds; depository requirements. Increases from $100 to $200 the amount of a credit card charge that may be reimbursed from petty cash funds by a candidate campaign committee. Provides that other political committees will have the same authority as a candidate campaign committee (i) to use a petty cash fund and (ii) to invest funds in an interest-bearing account so long as all expenditures are made through the committee's designated depository account. This is a recommendation of the task force that assisted the State Board of Elections in conducting a review of the Campaign Finance Disclosure Act pursuant to House Joint Resolution 667 (2005). This bill is the same as SB 227. Read the Bill »
