Utah Governor Signs Bill Expanding Ban on Contributions During Sessions
Gov. Gary Herbert signed House Bill 320 this week, putting it into effect immediately.
The bill expands the existing prohibition on contributions to legislators during a legislative session to also cover contributions to the lieutenant governor, attorney general, state auditor, and state treasurer.
The prohibition extends to contributions to the personal campaign committees and political action committees (PACs) of the covered candidates. Previously, only contributions to legislators were banned during sessions.
Parties prohibited from contributing during session include persons, lobbyists, principals, and political committees.
