SECTION 1. The Massachusetts General Laws are hereby amended by inserting the following new chapter:
An Act for Parity in all Organizational; and Non-Individual Campaign Contributions.
1.) As Massachusetts has often been a leader in various legal provisions, and public policies, it also, from time to time, seeks to compare, and adjust itself, as it should, in terms of relevant ideas, in and/or from other jurisdictions.
2.) Thus, in the matters of campaign finance, there exists an anomaly, that has need of being adjusted, relating to campaign contributions, and in doing so, assist the process of transparency, in sources, and reporting of contributions. That is, that in most states, union candidate contributions, and corporate candidate contributions, conform equally to the same rules. This legislation corrects this non-parity.
3.) Mass General Laws Chapter 55, are hereby amended as follows: All Union Candidate Contributions, and Corporate Candidate
contributions, shall be the same as PAC limits, and shall be fully reported under the laws, and regulations, of the Commonwealth.
4.) The Office of Campaign and Political Finance (OCPF) shall have all appropriate legal power to further define any regulations, flowing from this statute.
