Alaska House passes campaign contribution limits bill

    JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — The Alaska House has narrowly passed legislation that would set a limit on individual contributions to candidates.

    Prior limits were struck down by a court and the state agency overseeing campaign finance rules urged the Legislature to revisit the contribution limits issue.

    The bill would allow an individual to contribute up to $2,000 each campaign period to a candidate.

    It also addresses contribution limits for non-party groups.

    The bill calls for periodic adjustments to the limits based on inflation rates and seeks to make the limits retroactive to March 3.

    The bill passed 21-18 late Wednesday.

    It next goes to the Senate.
