Long Beach : Contribution-Cap Study Set

December 19, 1985

The City Council has agreed to consider putting a measure to limit campaign contributions on the April, 1986, ballot.

The council voted unanimously Tuesday to study the proposed limit when it meets as the Charter Amendment Committee on Jan. 7.

As drafted, the proposal would set a $750 ceiling on contributions to council members and a $1,500 limit for citywide offices.

Although the council agreed to consider the limit, the proposal faces opposition from several members who believe it would be too restrictive.

City officials say the contribution ceiling may be incorporated as part of a proposed April ballot measure asking city voters to approve citywide election of a mayor and a full-time council. That plan also is scheduled to be debated by the council during the Charter Amendment Committee meeting.
