Campaign Contribution Limits For School District Director Elections

Concerning the establishment of contribution limits under the 'Fair Campaign Practices Act' for candidates for school district director.
Session:
2016 Regular Session
Subject:
Elections & Redistricting

Current law regulating campaign finance does not set limits on contributions to candidates for school district director.

Section 2 of the bill:
  • Sets aggregate limits on contributions to candidates for school district director from persons other than small donor committees for any regular biennial or special school election in the amount of $500; and
  • Sets aggregate limits on contributions to candidates for school district director from small donor committees for any regular biennial or special school election in the amount of $5,000.

Section 3 of the bill subjects the new contribution limits to existing statutory provisions governing the disclosure of campaign contributions.

Section 4 of the bill contains requirements governing when a candidate for school district director is required to provide disclosure of information concerning campaign contributions and clarifies that such candidates are required to file their disclosure with the secretary of state.
