"historic step forward" in adopting campaign contribution caps last year, members of the CHANGE Illinois!
coalition say there's one "missing ingredient" to the law: a limit on
the contributions that political parties and legislative caucuses can
make during the general election cycle. To that end, State Sen. Heather
Steans (D-Chicago) and House Minority Leader Tom Cross (R-Oswego) introduced two bills today that Steans says will close the campaign finance "loophole."
