St. Louis, MO Campaign Finance Bill Approved in Committee
St. Louis aldermen advanced Board Bill 53 out of committee on Tuesday, September 20.
The bill would limit contributions to municipal candidates to $10,000 per city election cycle. Such a limit is nearly four times the proposed state candidate contribution limit currently slated for the November ballot.
A final vote on the municipal measure is expected as early as October. The board bill, if passed, would take effect April 6, 2017.
