Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Election Code.  Prohibits a General Assembly candidate      
   from accepting more contributions  from  corporations,  trusts,  labor      
   organizations,  persons  not within his or her district, and political      
   committees than from individuals and businesses within the candidate's      
   district.  Provides that the prohibition does not apply to  candidates      
   for  State Representative who accept less than $30,000, and candidates      
   for  State  Senator  who  accept  less  than  $45,000,  in  aggregated      
   contributions from persons  not  within  the  district,  corporations,      
   trusts,   labor  organizations,  and  political  committees.  Requires      
   disclosure  of  persons  within  the  district   if   those   persons'

   from within the district.  Provides that a candidate who accepts those      
   prohibited contributions is ineligible for appointment or election  to      
   the  General  Assembly  until  the  second  general election after the      
   violation occurs  or,  if  that  person  is  elected  to  the  General      
   Assembly,  he  or  she  shall be  removed from office. Defines "family      
   member" to include the candidate.  Permits disclosure  of contributors
