Local Election Expense Limit Recommendations, Report Released

In October 2014, the Legislative Assembly appointed an all-party Special Committee on Local Elections Expense Limits with a two-part mandate: first, to examine and make recommendations on principles for local election expense limits; and, second, to examine and make recommendations by June 12, 2015 on expense limit amounts for candidates and third party advertisers. The Committee issued its first report on December 15, 2014, recommending that the principles of fairness, neutrality, transparency and accountability inform the development of legislation on expense limits for candidates, elector organizations, and third party advertisers. The Committee also recommended that third party advertising be included in an expense limits framework, with an overarching, cumulative limit as exists in provincial elections. The Committee’s report was presented to the Legislative Assembly on February 11, 2015.
