A legislative committee met Wednesday to consider several changes to the state's campaign finance reform law, including legislation to close a loophole that has the potential to wipe out reforms enacted last year.
The votes in the Government Administration and Elections Committee are a first step toward crafting an overall bill aimed at addressing concerns of election reform advocates and minor political parties. (AP)
I'm glad to see that this is being addressed this session. That loophole is very strange. I wonder why it was put there? As sort of a failsafe?
I'll be interested to see how they'll deal with the question of minor parties, especially.
