gu, aa9 Congressman Last week the House passed a tough campaign reform bill. It goes a Mug way toward clean- lug up abuses to which we have all been witness recently. CAMPAIGN REFORM Under existing law-4he I971 Federal Elections Campaign Act --strict disclosure of campaign receipts and expenditures are required. Yet since passage of the act, the cost and scope of federal elections in the country have been growing at an alarm- ing rate. Over $66 million was spe~ on House and Senate races in 1972. In 1952, it was estimated that $90 million was spent an all elections in America. By 1968 total costs had risen to $300 mil- lion, and it has been estimated that $400 million was spent for all elections in 1972--a 33 per- cent increase in just four years! With the higher costs of cam- palgning, candidates all over the country have needed to raise Ira)re to run. This unchecked rise in campaign spending is directly respotmible for legisla- tion to set tough .spending limits on federal cam~. NEW SPENDING CEILINGS The legislation passed by the House limits campaign spending ~flpra~dential candidate~ to $10 [ion for primaries and $20 mil- lion ~r general eleetiom. All funds for presidential candidates in the general election would come ~ the $1 check-off fund, none from the gmeral funds of the treasury. Thus an individual tax payer has the right to decide whether to paxticipate or not, which is as it should be. One feature of this bill I strong- ly.support is the ceiling on cam- .si~ expenditures for congres- races/ The bill sets a of $60,000 on spending for primaries and the same ~motmt for general elec- tiros. ~y the congres- si~ml ~ was $75,000, but it was reduced as the result of an amendnlent on the floor by Rep. James Cleveland (R-New Hamp- shire) which I supported with my. vote. Smnte races would bd, limited to $75,000 for primaries and the same amount for general eleefiom, or 5 ceres for each dtizon of the state, whichever is grealex. ceilings are high enough to allow a challenger a chance to boy adequate publicity to express ~is views, yet jt wnl preveat 15e e~traardmary large amotmt~ of ~aeadiug we have witnessed in tim last four years.

FRED BLAKEMAN Mmrcroft, WIFe. I[ II I I I Teno Roncafio liouaires controlling a candidate tkrongh large contributions is a sea/T one. With that in mind, Congress included strict limita- tions on maximum contributions from any single individual. Con- tributions from individuals to any one candidate for any federal office would be limited to $1,000 per election. No individual could contribute more than a total of $25,000 in one year to all federal candidaCes in the election. Cash contributions more than $100 are also outlawed. ENFORCEMENT The bill includes a Federal Elections Cornmission to enforce the new law. It has been sent to a corderence committee made up of members of the Senate and House to work out differences betweea the House bill and a similar version passed by the Senate on April 11 of this year.
