Michigan Legislature Considers Changes to Campaign Finance Law
The Michigan Legislature is considering a bill to amend existing campaign finance law.
The bill would require those making independent expenditures for a candidate or ballot question within 60 days of an election where that candidate or ballot question is on the ballot to file an electronic report with the secretary of state within seven days of making such expenditure.
Failure to file such a report would result in a late filing fee equal to the lesser of the total amount of the independent expenditure or $2,000.
