San Antonio Passes Ordinance Expanding Campaign Disclosure Rules
This month, the San Antonio City Council approved substantial changes to the campaign finance and ethics codes.
The new ordinance requires additional campaign finance reports and disclosure of the name and title of anyone contributing $100 or more to a council member or mayoral campaign.
In the same council meeting, an ordinance increasing campaign contribution limits by 50% did not pass as a result of a tied vote.
The new disclosure and reporting rules will go into effect starting on July 1, the beginning of the next campaign cycle.
The passed changes are not yet available online but are anticipated by the City Clerk to be available this week.
