Description

Campaign finance; valuation of certain campaign contributions. Provides a general rule that the value of in-kind contributions benefiting multiple candidates will be divided equally among the benefiting candidates. However, the maker of the contribution may apportion the value of the contribution among the candidates on an objective basis that is stated in his campaign reports and documented in his records. 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 identical to SB 231. Read the Bill »
