Representatives Jay Goyal (D-Mansfield) and Dennis Murray (D-Sandusky) have announced that they will introduce legislation to ban campaign contributions from corporations that do business with the state. The legislation also will include new accountability and disclosure measures in the wake of the Citizens United v. Federal Elections Commission case decided by the U.S. Supreme Court, which allows for corporate spending in campaigns. (See the Calfee First Alert on this decision.) Senator Jon Husted (R-Kettering) also has proposed legislation, Senate Bill 240, in response to the ruling. His bill would require reporting of all expenditures by unions and corporations to the secretary of state's office, including the filing of weekly reports during a 90-day window before the election. Additionally, organizations that spend money would have to reveal all their large donors and foreign corporations would be banned from spending. Senate Bill 240 is currently pending in the Senate State & Local Government & Veterans Affairs Committee.
