Wyoming Interim Committee Tables Campaign Finance Bill
A legislative committee has voted to table a draft bill to expand disclosure requirements for political independent expenditure groups. The bill would require a group to report an independent expenditure if it “directly or indirectly” advocated for the election or defeat of a candidate.
Current law requires reporting only if the expenditure “expressly” advocates for the election or defeat of a candidate. A majority of the Joint Corporations, Elections, and Political Subdivisions Interim Committee decided the language was overly broad.
