McCann introduces legislation to reduce campaign contribution limits

Senator Sean McCann is introducing legislation that would reduce the allowable amounts of money that can be contributed to a candidate’s campaign.

This legislation would cut all campaign contribution limits to state-level candidates, campaigns, and Political Action Committees in half.

The legislation would also eliminate a provision that allows contribution limits to be adjusted based on inflation every 4-years without legislative action.

McCann says, “Elections should be decided by the strength of the candidate’s ideas and leadership, not by money…This legislation to cut our campaign contribution amounts is an important step in ensuring lawmakers are accountable to their constituents first.”

According to the Michigan Campaign Finance Network, Michigan’s 2018 election cycle was the most expensive in the state’s history, with over $60-million spent on state legislature campaigns alone.
