Report: Campaign Contribution Limits Too High in Ohio
A new report says contribution limits for legislative candidates and political party and legislative caucus funds in Ohio are too high.
The report from the New York-based watchdog Brennan Institute for Justice says Ohio is the only Midwest state that permits individuals to give the same maximum, $10,000, to legislative candidates as well as statewide candidates.
The state also permits individuals to give up to $30,000 to a state political party, ranking it second behind New York among states that allow such contributions, according to the report. It also criticizes as too high the $15,000-per-year limit on individual contributions to legislative party campaign funds.
The center gave the state an A-plus for its electronic campaign filing system, required of all candidates for statewide and legislative office.
