Miller Touts Tighter Nevada Campaign Reporting Laws

Posted: Updated:

Secretary of State Ross Miller wants to shed light on gifts and campaign contributions received by Nevada lawmakers and other public officials.

Miller on Tuesday presented his campaign finance bill, SB49, to the Senate Committee on Legislative Operations and Elections.

Among other things, the bill would require candidates to report any contributions of $1,000 or more within 72 hours. It would also require candidates to disclose how much cash their campaigns have on hand -- something not currently required.

But some lawmakers questioned the 72-hour reporting provision, saying it amounts to job security for accountants and would be onerous for candidates.

No action was taken by the committee.

The committee also heard testimony on SB203 requiring lobbyists to file quarterly reports on their wining and dining activities between legislative sessions. (AP)
