Senate Bill 30
149th General Assembly (2017 - 2018)
Out of Committee 4/26/17
The General Assembly has ended, the current status is the final status.
AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 15 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO CAMPAIGN FINANCE, REPORTING, AND DISCLOSURE.
This Act requires political committees to report a contributor’s occupation and employment information. This is already a requirement in federal campaign finance law. If only a contributor’s name and address are disclosed (without occupation and employer), it is difficult to determine which industry, company, or group is funding a candidate. This will assist in furthering transparency and disclosure in the electoral process. It also addresses the obligation of the reporting candidate and treasurer.
Takes effect upon being signed into law
