Donation Limits on Slate Mailers to Be Extended

July 17, 2002|From Times Staff Reports

In an attempt to control spending in future political races, Orange County will begin regulating slate mailers that are devoted primarily to supporting or opposing a single candidate.

An amendment to the county's campaign reform ordinance that was approved Tuesday extends its $1,000 contribution limit to cover slate mailers that are produced or distributed with the cooperation of a candidate's campaign.

The candidate now will have to pay his or her share of the mailer's costs.

The cost of the mailers typically far exceed the $1,000 limit.
