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.
