HB17-1262 - Expand Disclosure Electioneering Communications

Postponed Indefinitely
Concerning the expanded disclosure of electioneering communications to include the period between the primary election and the general election.

For purposes of campaign finance disclosure, sections 1 and 2 of the bill expand the definition of this term in the 'Fair Campaign Practices Act' to include any communication that satisfies all other requirements of the definition of the term specified in the state constitution but that is broadcast, printed, mailed, delivered, or distributed between the primary election and the general election.
