Spokane, Washington City Council Overrides Mayor’s Veto of Campaign Finance Law
With a 6-1 vote, Spokane, Washington City Council overrode Mayor David Condon’s veto of a campaign finance reform ordinance.
The new ordinance will cut in half the maximum allowable donation to candidates, from $1,000 to $500.
Additional changes include a pay-to-play provision to prohibit contributions from contractors, a restriction on when contributions may be received, and a requirement to disclose a committee’s top donors.
