EXPLANATION
The Nevada Constitution currently has no provisions which define or regulate campaign contributions. This amendment defines campaign contributions as including items such as paid polling and resulting data, paid direct mail, paid solicitation by telephone, and paid campaign paraphernalia printed or otherwise produced, and the use of paid personnel to assist in a campaign. The amendment also limits the total amount of contributions by a person to any state or local candidate to $5,000 for the primary election and $5,000 for the general election. A violation would be a felony.
FISCAL NOTE
Financial Impact - No. The proposal to amend the Nevada Constitution would limit certain campaign contributions. The proposal would have no adverse fiscal impact to the State.[1]
