California Senate Reverses Ban on Contributions Rule
The California Senate voted to reverse the ban on members raising money from lobbyist employers during budget negotiations.
The ban would have gone into effect upon the governor’s release of the revised budget, which is set for May 13. The reversal of this rule comes amid an election year where many members of the Senate are running for re-election.
