Concerning the establishment of contribution limits under the "Fair Campaign Practices Act" for candidates for school district director, and, in connection therewith, making an appropriation.
Session:
2022 Regular Session
Subject:
Elections & Redistricting
Bill Summary

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

The act:

  • 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 $2,500; 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 $25,000.

The act requires that these aggregate contribution limits be periodically adjusted for inflation consistent with other contribution limits.

The new contribution limits are subject to existing statutory provisions governing the disclosure of campaign contributions.

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

The act applies to the portion of any election cycle or for the portion of the calendar year remaining after July 1, 2022, and for any election cycle or calendar year commencing after said date.

For the 2022-23 state fiscal year, the act appropriates $7,500 to the department of state for hardware/software maintenance required for the act's implementation.
