DC Council Member to Introduce Emergency Legislation for Campaign Finance Reforms
D.C. Council Member Kenyan McDuffie announced his plan to introduce emergency legislation to ban contributions to political action committees during non-election years.
There are currently other bills pending before the council that also seek to close this same campaign finance loophole, but they only had their first public hearings Nov. 16 and are unlikely to pass before the start of 2017.
McDuffie’s emergency bill would bypass many of the steps ordinarily required.
