SOS to propose massive campaign reform bill

Secretary of State Ross Miller has decided to advocate for a raft of campaign reforms in a state where most serious efforts have been entombed by craven legislators.

Among the concepts in a bill draft I have obtained and posted below (with a summary) is the most important one of all: Real-time, year-round campaign contribution reporting.

Kudos, SOS.


----Prohibition on gifts

----Greater disclosure from third party groups

----Reporting ending fund balance (amazing this does not exist already)

----Personal use of campaign funds defined

----Stronger enforcement and penalty capabilities

It may just be the most sweeping meausre of its kind in Nevada history. Finally, something that could engender bipartisanship in Carson City -- the wrong kind of cooperation, that is.

To the ramparts....
