SB635       (?)

Report Title: Elections; Administrative Fines; Criminal Prosecution
Description: Allows the elections commission to refer a complaint to the attorney general or county prosecutor in addition to any administrative determination and without the requirement that the commission believes the respondent has recklessly, knowingly, or intentionally committed a violation. Disqualifies a person convicted of violating elections criminal prosecution laws from holding elective public office for ten years rather than four. Repeals language stipulating that elections criminal prosecution law does not apply to any persons who has paid or agrees to pay fines related to report filing violations and advertisement violations prior to the commencement of the proceedings.
