State Senate Passes Package of Campaign Finance, Ethics Bills
Posted Tuesday, June 10th 2014 @ 7am  by KFBK News

The state Senate has passed a package of campaign finance reform and ethics bills in response to three suspended lawmakers entangled in criminal cases.

But lawmakers watered down a proposal to ban fundraising at certain times of the year. The bills now move onto the Assembly.

The first bill requires new disclosures for travel-related gifts and would ban elected officials from requesting payments on their behalf to nonprofit organizations.

The second bars candidates from fundraising for more than one state office at a time.

The third would ban fundraising during budget votes and at the end of the legislative session, instead approving nonbinding rules.
