House Kills Bill Urging Campaign Finance Reports

January 30, 2012, 4:55 PM

House Kills Bill Urging Campaign Finance Reports
PIERRE, SD - The South Dakota House has killed a bill that would bar a candidate for public office who failed to file campaign finance reports from running in a later election.
 
Rep. Jon Hansen from Dell Rapids is the main sponsor of the bill. He says an amendment to the bill needs more studying.  He says, "Rather than rush this through, I think it would be wise to take a year to make sure we get everything right."

The House voted 65 to 4 against the bill.

Candidates who don't file campaign finance reports, which include information on donations and campaign spending, already face administrative fines of $50 a day - up to a maximum of $3,000.

The State Affairs Committee passed the bill 9 to 4 last week.
