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.
