Current Bill Summary


SB 183 - Under the act, staff members of the leadership offices in the House and Senate must file financial interest statements.

The treasurer and deputy treasurer of all committees shall reside in the district or county in which the committee sits.

Legislative and senatorial district committees shall retain only one address in the district in which it sits for the purpose of receiving contributions.

Current law imposes a penalty of twice the amount of the contribution or expenditure that is incorrectly reported up to $5,000. This act removes the $5,000 cap and imposes a penalty equal to the amount of the contribution for failing to file or filing incomplete reports.
