House Bill 2788 - Campaign Finance

March 30, 2010 | AZPM

House Bill 2788 changes who can give money to political campaigns in Arizona. Current law prohibits corporations, limited liability corporations (LLC), or unions from contributing money or anything of value to a candidate or campaign. However, in January the US Supreme Court issued a ruling allowing corporations to contribute to campaigns. HB 2788 brings Arizona law into line with the ruling.

On March 24, 2010 the full House approved HB 2788 on a 55-0 vote
