2012 House Bill 5348: Impose restrictions on corporate and union political speech
Introduced by Rep. Ellen Lipton D-Huntington on February 2, 2012
Impose restrictions on corporate and union political speech to apply all the reporting requirements and restrictions of the state campaign finance law to corporations and unions that make an independent expenditure advocating the election or defeat of a candidate. The bill is part of a Democratic campaign finance regulation package comprised of House Bills 5348 to 5361, introduced after the U.S. Supreme Court’s Citizens United v Federal Election Commission ruling that overturned a law restricting independent expenditures not just by for-profit businesses, but also by unions and non-profit groups motivated by ideological or political concerns.   Official Text and Analysis.
