Ohio: campaign finance bill moving through the legislature

AP reports: A proposed fix to Ohio's campaign finance laws has something in it for both union and corporate interests to dislike.

Unions are protesting the elimination of a fund that shifts union dues to political activity without disclosing workers' names, while business groups don't like the legislation's ban on third-party advertising.

The full House was expected to vote on the bill Wednesday following the approval by the GOP-controlled House State Government Committee 8-5 along partisan lines Tuesday night.

Under the bill, political contribution limits would increase fourfold to $10,000. The bill also restricts the ability of statewide candidates to funnel contributions through county parties, and bans ads by third-party groups 30 days before an election. -- ONN.
