Gov. Brad Little signed Senate Bill 1113 on April 3, amending state campaign finance law, effective January 1, 2020.
The bill revises the definitions of candidate, election, electioneering communication, political committee, and public office.
Senate Bill 1113 raises the registration threshold for political committees from $500 to $1000 while providing for a special provision for local elections and measures.
The bill requires candidates and political committees to file statements on a monthly basis during election years and annually during non-election years.
Senate Bill 1113 also amends late filing fees to accrue 48 hours after the deadline and requires the secretary of state or county clerk to notify the person within 24 hours of the missed filing deadline.
