Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Election Code. Changes the length of time that a treasurer of a political committee must keep certain records from 2 years to 6. Provides that a candidate political committee established to elect a candidate to the General Assembly may accept contributions from only one legislative caucus committee during an election cycle in which the candidate seeks nomination at a primary election (rather than limiting the political committee to accepting contributions from only one legislative caucus committee). Allows candidates to exceed certain contribution limits if the State Board of Elections determines that a public official, candidate, or public official's or candidate's immediate family has contributed or loaned certain threshold amounts to the public official's or candidate's political committee or to other political committees that transfer funds to the public official's or candidate's political committee or make independent expenditures for the benefit of the public official's or candidate's campaign during the 12 months prior to an election. Allows the Board to assess a civil penalty for failure to file certain reports concerning independent expenditures. Requires the Board to render a judgment on certain complaints concerning disclosure and regulation of campaign contributions and expenditures before the date of the election if the complaint is filed within 60 days preceding the date of the election (rather than within 7 days of the date the complaint is filed). Moves provisions concerning election interference to the prohibitions and penalties article of the Code. Effective immediately.
