Campaign finance reform will wait until next session
The Legislature adjourned late Tuesday, May 14, 2013, after passing a $1.4 billion budget bill.
Other hallmark legislation of the session included decriminalization of small amounts of marijuana, assisted suicide, and driver’s licenses for migrant workers, but the legislature failed to pass a major campaign finance reform bill.
Supporters of campaign finance reform vowed to revisit the issue in January 2014.
