Union anti-corruption measure circulating

Curbing "pay to play" extortion

The Montana Secretary of State’s office has approved eight statewide ballot initiatives as qualified for signature-gathering, meaning that supporters will be out asking voters to sign petitions to qualify the initiatives for the November 4 ballot:

Initiative 156: I-156 prohibits political contributions by persons and organizations with certain state or local government contracts until two years after the end of the contract. It prohibits political contributions by labor unions that have collective bargaining agreements with state or local governments. It prohibits political contributions by persons or organizations awarded state or local government contracts without the solicitation of at least three bids. It requires persons with state or local government contracts exceeding $25,000 (or $75,000 of building contracts) to file public reports with the Commissioner of Political Practices.
