Missouri Bill Seeks to Reinstate Campaign Contribution Limits
Senate Bill 75, introduced to the Legislature on the first day of session, seeks to reinstate the state’s campaign contribution limits. The bill limits contributions to $2,000 for statewide office, $1,000 for state senators, $500 for state representatives, $325 for any other office if the population is under 100,000, $850 if it is between 100,000 and 250,000, and $1,275 if the population is more than 250,000.
The bill also alters the state’s revolving door provision by preventing legislators from becoming lobbyists for two years after leaving office.
