Lieu, Lee To Introduce Bills Targeting Campaign Donors
On Monday, Sens. Ted Lieu (D-Torrance) and Leland Yee (D-San Francisco) announced plans to introduce two bills (SB 2, SB 3) that would strengthen disclosure rules for not-for-profit groups that donate to state campaigns and launch mass mailings. The legislation was developed in response to an Arizona group's $11 million donation to campaigns opposing Proposition 30 and supporting Proposition 32 in last month's election.
