Los Angeles County to Consider Campaign Finance Amendments
Amendments to the Los Angeles County campaign finance laws are expected to be introduced at the July 26, 2011 meeting of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors.
The current campaign finance ordinance prohibits PACs and political parties from making contributions to county candidates and prohibits inter- and intra-candidate transfers of funds.
The proposed campaign finance amendments would increase individual campaign contribution limits as well as permit contributions from PACs and political parties.
Under the proposed amendments, inter-candidate transfers would be treated as individual contributions.
Intra-candidate transfers between a prior and current campaign account would be permissible and subject to regulatory measures.
