Legislature adopts changes to campaign finance law

AL.com reports: Alabama's law governing campaign finance would change in numerous ways under a bill approved by the Legislature tonight.

The Senate and House of Representatives voted tonight to pass a compromise version of SB445 by Sen. Bryan Taylor, R-Prattville.

The bill goes to Gov. Robert Bentley, who could sign it into law.

It would repeal the $500 cap on campaign donations by corporations. Proponents of that change have said the cap is meaningless because corporations can legally skirt it. -- Read the whole story --> Legislature approves bill to change campaign finance law, repeal cap on corporate contributions | al.com
