Reform Caucus Legislative Update

#12, March 16, 2018

It's been a quiet week in Concord, at least as far as ODA priority bills are concerned. No action on either of the two bills still living. This coming week will be similarly uneventful.

What you need to know in a nutshell 

Both Senate and House meet in general session on Wednesday and Thursday of next week, cleaning up their calendars before crossover on March 22.

SB 33, the bill that would close the loophole that allows independent spending groups to avoid registering with the Secretary of State and filing expenditure reports, remains on the table in the House with the pending question: Refer to Interim Study. No telling when it might surface again.

SB 363 (bans foreign donations) passed the Senate and heads to the House. A hearing on the bill is yet to be scheduled in the House Election Law Committee.
