Wyoming Working Towards Limiting Corporate Money Influence on State Elections
State lawmakers and the Office of the Secretary of State are working on legislation to limit the influence of corporate money on state elections.
The Office of the Secretary of State proposed a slate of election code changes to the Joint Committee on Corporations, Elections, and Political Subdivisions.
Changes include a prohibition on corporations donating to political parties or political action committees in coordination to back a specific candidate in an election.
A motion was unanimously approved by members of the committee and a bill could be introduced during the 2020 budget session.
