SB127 -- Campaign Finance Reform

OPPOSE: This bill essentially protects incumbents from open speech and fair criticism. The fact that the Senate passed this 50-0 should scare everyone of us. The bill no longer allows a related group of individuals to form a political action committee. It also provides for increased paperwork requirements for an individual or group with deep pockets who would like to point out the misbehavior of our elected officials. I guess if you can't stifle free speech, why not bureaucratize it?

STATUS: Passed Senate 50-0. Referred to House Committee on Elections and Apportionment.
