Ethics board reviews campaign finance rules
The state Board of Ethics has been looking at revising how candidates running for office spend their campaign contributions. The Campaign Finances Rules committee says it's in the process of reviewing a new set of recommendations regarding campaign finance rules. Once a draft of recommendations has been compiled, the committee will present the full board with the recommendations for consideration. Scott Schneider, chairman of the committee, says its members began looking at revisions for the current rules because the board noticed a number of cases where campaign funds seemed to be used for purely personal reasons. Louisiana has traditionally had few restrictions on how candidates can spend their campaign funds. On the table for consideration are campaign funds used by candidates for sports tickets, clothing and travel expenses.
