Nevada’s Revised Definition of “Committee for Political Action” Effective Today
Senate Bill 246
Effective today, Nevada Senate Bill 246 revises the definition of “committee for political action” to include new threshold levels.
Entities in Nevada whose primary purpose is to affect outcomes of elections are now defined as those with more than $1,500 in contributions or expenditures in a calendar year. Entities whose primary purpose is not to affect outcomes of elections have a $5,000 calendar year threshold. Committees must register with the Nevada secretary of state no later than seven days after qualifying under the revised definition.
The changes in the bill were modeled on similar statutes previously enacted by the state of Maine.
