San Francisco, California Ethics Commission Drafts Campaign Finance Amendments
The Ethics Commission has released a memorandum summarizing legislative amendments proposed by staff to update, simplify, and improve the city’s Campaign Finance Reform Ordinance. The proposed amendments will repeal aggregate contribution limits, simplify reporting requirements for corporations and committees, and clarify disclaimer requirements for campaign communications.
The amendments will be considered during the Ethics Commission’s meeting on January 26 and will become law only if passed by the commission and approved by two-thirds of the Board of Supervisors. The memorandum is available here.
