San Diego Committee Endorses ECCO Amendments

San DiegoA committee of City Council has endorsed new campaign contribution rules to monitor independent political action committees. The rules would classify a committee’s otherwise independent payment as a “contribution” if the payment is for an advertisement duplicating materials found in a candidate’s advertisement or on the candidate’s website.

The full City Council will now consider the amendments to the Election Campaign Control Ordinance (ECCO).
