    bill shifts to House

    MONTPELIER — It’s on to the Vermont House for a bill that would set new limits on campaign contributions and ban campaign giving by corporations outright.

    A bill passed by the Senate sets limits for House candidates of $750 per two-year cycle from an individual or political action committee and $3,000 from a party.

    For state Senate candidates the limits would be $1,500 from an individual or PAC and $6,000 from a party.

    For statewide offices from governor down to attorney general, the limits would be $3,000 from a person or PAC and $85,000 from a political party.

    The bill sets new requirements for campaign finance reports, but does not do something Secretary of State Jim Condos wanted: move the Vermont primary from late August to early in the month.
