Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Political committees advocating passage or defeat of referenda; disclosure. Requires a political committee to comply with the requirements of the Campaign Finance Disclosure Act and file a statement of organization and contribution and expenditure reports if the committee makes expenditures in a calendar year to advocate the passage or defeat of (i) a statewide referendum in excess of $10,000, (ii) a referendum held in two or more counties and cities in excess of $5,000, and (iii) a referendum held in a single county or city in excess of $1,000. The bill modifies the requirements for the statement of organization, requires a separate account be maintained for expenditures related to a referendum, and exempts advertisements by such committees from certain disclosure statement requirements.
