Campaign-fundraising exception for fiscal session backed

By The Associated Press

This article was published January 29, 2014 at 1:21 p.m.

An Arkansas House panel is recommending that two members running for Congress be allowed to raise campaign funds during next month's legislative session.

The House Rules Committee on Wednesday voted to recommend exempting candidates for federal office from a prohibition on raising money during the legislative session. The Legislature convenes its fiscal session Feb. 10.

State Reps. Bruce Westerman and Ann Clemmer are running for two congressional seats. Westerman had asked the panel whether the fundraising prohibition applies to federal candidates.

The rule change would have to be approved by two-thirds of the House.

The Senate does not bar its members from raising money during fiscal sessions, which are held in even-numbered years.

What, because there is no danger of corruption when they are only deciding whether to spend money??
