Delays Vote on Contribution Limits
The Los Angeles City Ethics Commission has voted to shorten the length of time during which candidates for office may conduct fundraising.
If the commission’s ruling is approved by city council, candidates for city council will have 12 months instead of the current 18 months for fundraising, and citywide candidates will have 18 months instead of the current two year period for fundraising.
The commission additionally decided to delay the vote on whether or not the campaign contribution limit should be increased from $500 to $1,100 per donor.
