One legislator tells how they’re affected by IM22

From the comment section – here’s how Senator Elect Ryan Maher is immediately affected by Initiated Measure 22:

Ryan Maher                  
Pat – here is my situation up here in little ole Isabel. I own an insurance agency that sells progressive insurance along with quite a few other companies as an indepent agent. I receive commissions every month from these companies which is over $100. I am at a loss right now with what to do with an entire agency. I also own a cafe I had a big event planned with Moreau Grand Electric they now had to cancel as the would be in violation of IM22. The local bank and health clinic both have Christmas parties scheduled, well they are going to have to cancel them. The list just continues.

Literally, this is just insane.

The problem with this law is that it assumes that our legislators are full-time. But they’re not. They’re part time legislators who have to have regular employment outside of the legislature. But IM22 makes no allowances for it.

This poorly written pile of garbage needs to be repealed immediately, and on an emergency basis.

    There will be a lot of unintended consequences as a result of Marsy’s law as well. This needs to be seriously modified or repealed.

    Attorney General explanation-(excerpt)

    The Attorney General explanation for this measure was as follows:[6]

    This measure extensively revises State campaign finance laws. It requires additional disclosures and increased reporting. It lowers contribution amounts to political action committees; political parties; and candidates for statewide, legislative, or county office. It also imposes limits on contributions from candidate campaign committees, political action committees, and political parties.

    How does that apply to any claim here?

    The attorney general explanation is one paragraph. That is not the law. The initiated measure is 70 sections and about thirty pages in small single spaced font.
