Description

Current law regulating campaign finance does not set limits on
contributions to candidates for a county office. Section 1 of the bill sets
the maximum amount of aggregate contributions that a person may make
to a candidate committee of a candidate for a county office, and that a
candidate committee for such candidate may accept from such person, as

follows:
  • In the case of any person other than a small donor
committee or a political party, $1,250 for both the primary
and general elections;
  • In the case of a small donor committee, $12,500 for both
the primary and general elections; and
  • In the case of a political party, $22,125 for the applicable
election cycle.
The bill defines county office to mean a county commissioner,
county clerk and recorder, sheriff, coroner, treasurer, assessor, or
surveyor.
Section 1 also specifies that the contribution limits in the bill are
required to be adjusted for inflation in the same manner as other
contribution limits specified in the state constitution.
The bill also makes statutory requirements governing the
disclosure of campaign finance information and the filing of disclosure
reports applicable to a contribution made to, or received by, a candidate
committee of a candidate for a county office.
Section 2 makes a conforming amendment.
