    MONTPELIER — Another effort to reduce the influence of money in politics appears to have fallen by the wayside, as Vermont lawmakers prepare to finish up their business for the year.

    House and Senate conferees have been unable to agree on provisions of the campaign finance bill, particularly a House-passed provision that seeks to limit contributions to so-called super-PACS to $5,000.

    Lawmakers could address the measure when they return in January, but it’s doubtful they would put changes in place to affect the 2014 election year.

    Meanwhile, conferees on a tax package are still arguing over several provisions, including whether to allow a moratorium to expire on applying the sales tax to software obtained from the Internet — the so-called cloud tax.
