Campaign Finance Commission Upholds Ban of Contributions During Suspended Session
The Georgia Campaign Finance Commission issued formal opinions to reiterate the General Assembly is still legally in session.
Lawmakers have not officially adjourned sine die, nor has the governor issued an executive order adjourning both houses.
Members of the General Assembly and other statewide elected public officers remain subject to the session ban on campaign contributions.
However, they are permitted to issue reimbursements to themselves and campaign staff for expenses incurred during the suspended session.
