“Finance reform measure advances”

The Palm Beach Post offers this report, which begins: “TALLAHASSEE — Senate President Tom Lee’s campaign finance reform package passed its first hurdle Thursday, but election law experts and Gov. Jeb Bush questioned the constitutionality of the measure. The proposal (SB 716) prohibits elected state officials, including Bush, and candidates from accepting any soft money and strictly regulates campaign advertisements by third parties, including ‘electioneering communications organizations,’ which exist solely to influence elections.”
