Bill Caption

Relating to contributions and expenditures made in connection with a campaign for speaker of the house of representatives. 

Fiscal Notes

From the LBB: No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated. 

Bill Analysis

This bill would allow organizations to give contributions to aid or defeat the election of a speaker candidate. The bill would also get rid of the cap on expenditures an individual can make for the cost of correspondence. 

Vote Recommendation Notes

This change is in keeping with the principle of limited government as it gets rid of restrictions on organizations and allows them to express political speech in the form of contributions to aid or defeat speaker candidates, therefore we support this legislation.
