With the start of the legislative session in Jefferson City this week we not only get a look at legislative sausage making, we also get a somewhat more refined look at campaign fundraising as it happens. During the session there is a requirement to report contributions in excess of $500.00 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.

….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….

Contribution amounts in excess of $5,000.00 must be reported within forty-eight hours throughout the year.
