Campaign Finance Legislation Introduced in Oregon
On May 23, Rep. Mitch Greenlick introduced House Joint Resolution 32, proposing a ballot measure to impose a $500 limit on political contributions from any organization that gets more than half of its funding from public sources.
HJR 32 seeks to limit influence from Medicaid providers that profit from the Oregon Health Plan while making large political contributions to lawmakers.
Under current law, organizations may make unlimited contributions and expenditures to candidates and political committees.
