Yep, the 96th General Assembly is now in session.

During the legislative session any member of the General Assembly or any statewide office holder who receives a campaign contribution over $500.00 must report that contribution to the Missouri Ethics Commission within forty-eight hours:

Missouri Revised Statutes

Chapter 130

Campaign Finance Disclosure Law

Section 130.044

Certain contributions to be reported within forty-eight hours of receipt–electronic reporting, when–rulemaking authority.

130.044. 1. All individuals and committees required to file disclosure reports under section 130.041 shall electronically report any contribution by any single contributor which exceeds five thousand dollars to the Missouri ethics commission within forty-eight hours of receiving the contribution.

2. Any individual currently holding office as a state representative, state senator, or any candidate for such office or such individual’s campaign committee shall electronically report any contribution exceeding five hundred dollars made by any contributor to his or her campaign committee during the regular legislative session of the general assembly, within forty-eight hours of receiving the contribution.

3. Any individual currently holding office as the governor, lieutenant governor, treasurer, attorney general, secretary of state or auditor or any candidate for such office or such person’s campaign committee shall electronically report any contribution exceeding five hundred dollars made by any contributor to his or her campaign committee during the regular legislative session or any time when legislation from the regular legislative session awaits gubernatorial action, within forty-eight hours of receiving the contribution.

4.

This section and chapter 536 are nonseverable and if any of the powers vested with the general assembly pursuant to chapter 536 to review, to delay the effective date, or to disapprove and annul a rule are subsequently held unconstitutional, then the grant of rulemaking authority and any rule proposed or adopted after August 28, 2008, shall be invalid and void.
