Campaign Controls? - October Unit II
In the Fall of 1968 we discussed Campaign Financing and reached the following Consensus:
Since 1968 our Legislature has passed a change in our law requiring disclosure of contributors (donating $500 or more - or an aggregate of this amount But statements are still filed 20 days after elections.
Now is the time for us to discuss our position again. In January when the Legislature convenes the Senate will be discussing HB-251 passed by the House last year which requires filing of a preliminary report (contributors and expenses)
10 days before elections; requires funds given to a' candidate be spent only., in behalf of that candidate; and requires setting up special rules for testimonial dinners.
In addition to this bill various legislators have said publically "they will present a bill including some type of limitation on campaign spending."
In order to do a League-like job we all ought to do some reading of various methods •
of controls, and some rethinking of where we stand. Your Study Committee has
prepared a Facts & Issues. We will review our consensus at the last units in October. The consensus questions will appear in the next State Voter.
