Wyoming Legislature Adjourns with New PAC Limits
The Legislature adjourned sine die on Friday, March 6, 2015, after passing two campaign finance bills.
House Bill 38 was originally filed to remove all contribution limits for political action committees (PACs), but amendments to the bill keep a $5,000 limit from a PAC to any candidate who is not a statewide candidate.
House Bill 39 repeals the state’s aggregate contribution limits, which conflict with the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission.
