Vote number 2002-34 campaign finance reform banning soft-money contributions
on Feb 14, 2002 regarding bill HR 2356 Bill sponsored by Shays, R-CT, and Meehan D-MA
Results: Bill passed 240-189

Shays-Meehan Campaign Finance Overhaul: Vote to pass a bill that would ban soft money contributions to national political parties but permit up to $10,000 in soft money contributions to state and local parties to help with voter registration and get-out-the-vote drives. The bill would stop issue ads from targeting specific candidates within 30 days of the primary or 60 days of the general election. Additionally, the bill would raise the individual contribution limit from $1,000 to $2,000 per election for House and Senate candidates, both of which would be indexed for inflation.
