Kentucky Lawmakers Pass Campaign Finance Bill
The Kentucky Legislature passed a bill this week to double the limits on contributions from individuals and PACs to candidates, state executive committees, and caucus campaign committees.
Senate Bill 75, according to supporters, provides greater transparency and will make it easier for everyday citizens to compete with dark money while running for office.
Opponents, however, believe the focus should be on curbing dark money and adding more money to the equation will further erode public trust.
Nonetheless, the bill will now be sent to the governor for review.
