Description

Reporting certain designated campaign contributions. Requires political action committees, out-of-state political committees and federal political action committees to report contributions they receive that are designated for the election of a particular candidate. Such committees will be required to provide a candidate's campaign committee with information regarding the contributor of the designated contribution so that the candidate can identify that contribution on his or her campaign finance report. In turn, candidate campaign committees will be required to report designated contributions transmitted from such committees as being made by the person who designated the contribution. The act will become effective on January 1, 2009. Read the Bill »
