ELEC CD-RESIDENT CAMPAIGN FUND                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends  the  Election  Code.   Prohibits   a   General   Assembly      
   candidate, once he or she passes certain contribution thresholds, from      
   accepting   more   contributions   from  corporations,  trusts,  labor      
   organizations, persons not within his or her district,  and  political      
   committees  than  from  individuals and businesses residing within the      
   candidate's district.  Makes violators ineligible for General Assembly      
   membership or  subject  to  removal  from  office.   In  all  campaign      
   contribution  reports,  requires  categorization  of  contributors  as      
   family  members  within  the district, district residents, nondistrict      
   residents, or corporations, trusts, and labor organizations.   Defines      
   family   member   to  include  the  candidate.   In  General  Assembly      
   candidates' reports, requires disclosure of contributors  of  $150  or      
   less  if their contributions are included in determining the amount of      
   contributions from district residents;  permits  disclosure  of  those      
   contributors in all other reports. Classifies the making or acceptance      
   of  an  anonymous  contribution  or a contribution in another's name a      
   Class C misdemeanor.  Effective January 1, 1999.
