Short description: 
ELEC CD-FALSE INCUMBENCY                                                   

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Election Code.  Provides that  a  person  who  falsely      
   indicates  in campaign materials that a candidate for public office is      
   an incumbent when the candidate is not the incumbent is  guilty  of  a      
   petty  offense.   Provides that the penalty is a fine of not more than      
   $500.  Effective immediately.                                               
          FISCAL NOTE (State Board of Elections)                               
          HB 2155 would have minimal fiscal impact on the operations of        
          the State Board of Elections.  Any cost to implement the pro-        
          visions of HB 2155, as introduced, can be absorbed within our        
          regular operating budget.
