Bill Summary Details

Campaign Financing (Oppose)

CS/CS/SB 1890 (Rodrigues) imposes a $3,000 limit on contributions made to political committees sponsoring or opposing a constitutional amendment proposed by initiative. The limit will not apply once the Secretary of State has issued a certificate of ballot position and a designating number for a proposed constitutional amendment. In addition, the bill preempts local governments from enacting or adopting any limitation or restriction involving campaign or committee contributions and expenditures or establishing contribution limits different from those established in the Florida Election Code. Lastly, the bill amends current law provisions relating to the distribution of surplus funds by candidates. (O'Hara)
