Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Basic requirements for political campaign advertisements. Modifies the size requirement for the disclosure statement that must be printed on "print media" political campaign advertisements under the "Stand by Your Ad" law enacted in 2002. The law as enacted requires that the disclosure statement must constitute five percent of the height of any "print media" advertisement. The bill provides that the disclosure statement shall be "displayed in a conspicuous manner." The bill also specifically includes bumper stickers in the definition of "print media" and exempts novelty items such as pens, pencils, magnets, and buttons from the disclosure statement requirement. This bill contains an emergency clause and incorporates HBs 1551, 1692, and 2464.
