The state constitution defines an electioneering communication
to mean certain communication that unambiguously refers to a candidate
that is disseminated to the public within 30 days before a primary election
or within 60 days before a general election.
For purposes of campaign finance disclosure, sections 1, 2, and
3 of the bill expand the definition of this term in the Fair Campaign

Practices Act to include any communication that satisfies all other
requirements of the definition of the term specified in the state
constitution but that is broadcast, printed, mailed, delivered, or distributed
between the primary election and the general election.
Section 3 also requires any person who expends $1,000 or more
per calendar year on electioneering communications or regular biennial
school electioneering communications to state in the communication the
name of the person making the communication in accordance with
existing statutory requirements for communication constituting an
independent expenditure.
