This  legislation allows local governments to hold public hearings by teleconference when necessitated by emergency conditions, which ACCG supports.  Separately, it broadens the definition of an "applicant"
 applying for a zoning action who must disclose having made a contribution of more than $250 to a member of he governing authority deciding on the zoning application.  ACCG is neutral on this provision.

Ethics General County Government Todd Edwards
This changes state ethics law, requiring "political party caucus campaign committees" to file campaign contribution disclosure reports.  These committees are defined as a committee, corporation, or organization chaired by the majority leader of the Senate or House, the minority leaders of the Senate or House, or the majority caucus chair of the Senate or House. The bill then spells out rules by which these committees may receive and disburse monies as well as other rules governing their campaign involvement.      
Green background on status indicates a bill has been acted on the last recorded legislative day.
