Initiative Statement: Shall Utah Code be modified to prohibit the personal use of campaign donations by current office holders and political candidates?

General Description: This initiative fixes the deficient provisions of the 2009 Senate Bill 162 and prohibits the personal funds by office holders and candidates, not just former candidates or former office holders as was passed by the 2009 Utah Legislature.

Highlighted Provisions: This initiative prohibits the use of campaign funds by a current candidate or officeholder or former candidate or officeholder, for a purpose that would result in a recognition of the funds as taxable income under federal tax law.
