Long Beach, California Repeals Ban on Contributions from Officeholder Funds
On April 18, Long Beach City Council approved a measure to repeal a local campaign finance law which barred elected officials from contributing officeholder funds to other candidates running for elective office.
The restriction risked being challenged as unconstitutional and the repeal brings city law more in line with current state rules.
The City Council voted 5-3 in favor of the repeal.
