DIGEST OF HB1618 (Updated February 23, 2009 4:43 pm - DI 84)

Secretary of state political activity. Prohibits an individual who holds the office of secretary of state from: (1) serving in an official or unofficial capacity: (A) in the campaign of a candidate for an elected office; or (B) for a person who makes disbursements for the direct costs of producing or airing a communication that expressly advocates the election or defeat of a clearly identifiable candidate; (2) endorsing a candidate for an elected office; (3) conducting fundraising activities for a candidate for an elected office; or (4) soliciting contributions for or contributing to the campaign of a candidate for an elected office. Exempts from the prohibition a campaign in which the individual who holds the office of secretary of state is the candidate. Provides that the prohibition does not restrict the secretary of state from appearing or attending at or participating in a convention or other function sponsored by a national, state, or local political party. Authorizes the attorney general to enforce the prohibition, and establishes a civil penalty equal to the greater of: (1) two times the amount of any contribution made or received; or (2) $5,000.
