Ethics Commission to Limit Campaign Gifts
By AP
FRANKFORT, KY - The Legislative Ethics Commission wants to prohibit campaign contributions from employers of lobbyists and political action committees to lawmakers or legislative candidates when the General Assembly is in session. 

The panel is asking lawmakers to approve that change when they convene in January. 

The proposal would broaden an existing law that prohibits lobbyists from contributing to legislative campaigns.  

If passed, more than 650 companies employing lobbyists would no longer be able to contribute to lawmakers or legislative candidates during sessions, nor would more than 140 state-registered PACs.
