2018 Senate Bill 1022

Revise disbursements of liquidating campaign committee

Introduced in the Senate

May 22, 2018

Introduced by Sen. David Robertson (R-14)

To expand the allowable recipients of money held by a candidate’s campaign finance committee when the individual is no longer running for another office and the committee is being shut down. Under current law candidate committees cannot transfer money to other committees that have lower contribution limits. The bill would allow this, which is said to benefit senators with money in their Senate campaign committee but debts in their previous House campaign committees, which have lower contribution limits.
