RIP, CCEs? Latvala files bill to end ‘Committees of Continuous Existence’

in Uncategorized by

Senate Ethics and Elections Chairman Jack Latvala has filed a proposal that would eliminate the politically murky “committees of continuous existence,” which have thrived in recent elections.

Previously, Latvala questioned the full-scale elimination of CCEs, an idea backed by House Speaker Will Weatherfordl. The House Ethics & Elections Subcommittee has supported a proposal (HB 569) to get rid of CCEs and to raise limits on individual contributions to candidates from $500 to $10,000.
