Bill overhauling campaign finance laws heads to Arizona governor

Arizona voters might get the last word on sweeping legislation that alters the rules for “dark money” and other anonymous donations to politicians and ballot measures.

Rep. Ken Clark, D-Phoenix, who led the unsuccessful attempt to defeat the measure earlier this week, said he is setting up meetings with groups that would be interested in referring SB 1516 to the November ballot.

That includes former Attorney General Terry Goddard, who had launched an initiative drive to enact new state laws forcing greater disclosure of who is influencing elections. That campaign has been suspended while Goddard looks for donations after the initial source of funding dried up.
