DOVER, Del. (AP)- The Delaware House is set to vote on legislation regarding contributions to and from political parties.
The bill to be considered Thursday raises the maximum allowable contribution from a political party to a candidate for state House from $3,000 to $5,000, equal to the maximum for Senate candidates. It also raises the maximum amount an individual can contribute to a political party in an election cycle from $20,000 to $30,000.
The bill also establishes quarterly campaign finance reporting periods, similar to federal reporting requirements.
A proposed amendment would exempt postage costs of campaign materials paid for by a party from the contribution limits.
Another amendment exempts contributions to political parties that are used to pay for communications services, or to rent or buy equipment, supplies, or an office or building.
