Justus Proposes Campaign Contribution Caps

Sen. Jolie Justus pre-filed a campaign finance reform bill which would bring back campaign contribution limits.

 

 

Limits proposed: $10,000 for statewide candidates; $5,000 for state senators; $2,500 for state representatives; and for local elections the amounts are fixed according to population: $2,500 if the population of the area is under 100,000; $5,000 if the population of the area is between 100,000 and 250,000; and $10,000 if the population of the area is over 250,000.

 

Obviously, this doesn’t apply to candidates for federal office as they are already under contribution limits according to federal law.
