The Committee Guideline contains information regarding restricted and prohibited activities during elections. In particular, we are highlighting two restrictions:
- Restrictions on Contributions in Another's Name - Potential contributors are prohibited from making a contribution in someone else's name. Candidates and committees are prohibited from knowingly accepting a contribution from one person in the name of another person (BRC 13-3-4).
- Restrictions on Contributions by City Contractors - Anyone who is negotiating with the City or is under contract with the City to provide personal services, materials, supplies, equipment or for selling land or a building to the City is prohibited from making a contribution to a candidate, committee or to any person for any political purpose or use in a city election if the payment for the services, supplies, etc. is even partially appropriated by City Council. Contractors also are prohibited from promising to make such a contribution or to knowingly solicit such a contribution for someone else (BRC 13-3-3).
