Riggs unveils campaign finance reform bill Congressman Frank Riggs (R- CA-l) has unveiled a campaign finance reform proposal he will sponsor aimed at taking big mon- ey out of the elections process by eliminating "soft money" contri- butions and reducing what spe- cial interest =PAC's" can give to candidates running for federal office. Riggs' proposal strengthens the voters' voice in the political system by requiring that at least 50 percent of the money a candi- date raises comes from the state or Congressional District which the candidate seeks to represent. Riggs noted that several of the campaign finance proposals cur- rently being considered enact massive, sweeping changes in the law that would stand little chance of gaining support from a majority of Members of Congress. He also noted that some consti- tutional scholars have already criticized current proposals, say- ing they would be struck down as unconstitutional by the courts. "This reform proposal is a com- mon sense solution to the cam- paign finance scandals plaguing the political process. My bill can gather real bipartisan support in the Congress," Riggs said. "We left out all of the 'poison pills' and bill killers that will keep many of the other proposals from ever becoming law." "If you're looking for spending limits or public financing, you won't find them here. My pro- posal takes the very best of the ideas out there and puts them in one proposal that Congress can act on and that will pass consti- tutional muster," Riggs said. "We learned last year that America wants change in small bites, so this bill takes intelli- gent, incremental steps aimed at reforming the current sys- tem. It's evolutionary, not revo- lutionary. That's the best way to get a real campaign finance re- form bill passed into law." The Riggs' proposal would make the following changes to current campaign finance law: *Eliminate soft money at the federal level. *Require that a majority of the contributions in House and Senate races come from the dis- trict and/or state in which the candidate is running. *Increase the individual con- tribution limit to $2,000 per elec- tion and decrease the amount special interest PAC's could give by 60 percent, to $2,000 per elec- tion. *Require that within 60 days of an election, ads which use a candidate's name'or likeness be treated as campaign ads or inde- pendent expenditures. That would mean the ads could not be financed with corporate or union funds or involuntary dues, but instead must be financed with publicly disclosed voluntary con- tributions. *Require that mon- ey transferred between national and state parties be subject to federal disclosure laws. The source of the funds and nature of the expenditures would have to be reported to federal campaign watchdogs. *Require that labor unions disclose to their membership how much they spend on political activity and for whom/which party. *Faster disclosure: Require that political campaigns use elec- tronic filing to get all disclosures to the FEC more quickly (with an exception for campaigns rais- ing or spending less than $100,000). *More disclosure: Require fil- ing on a monthly basis in an election year and weekly during the last month before the elec- tion. "The system is in need of re- pair, but it is not beyond repair. There is no need to scrap the entire system, as some people suggest," Riggs said. "This is a way to restore some public confi- dence in the way politicians cam- paign and reduce the cynicism surrounding the entire political process. I have always said that if we want to change the way we govern, we have to change the way we campaign for office. This bill is the best chance for that." YOWLS" ticket to a secure retirement.

O.BONDS A pub ,.chic of this PA''ppcr The Old Feed Store to close its doors June 10 Larry Roberts, owner of The Old Feed Store, located at 1305 S. Cloverdale Blvd., has decided to close the business after six years and semi-retire. The business will officially close on June 10, but in the mean time red hot sales are going on with most store items sailing out the door at 50% to 80% off. The Old Feed Store has been in operation for at least 50 years, most of those years in the old building on Railroad Avenue. It was moved to its present loca- tion after a fire. The Old Feed Store was the place in town to rent U-Haul trucks and trailers. Roberts says be thinks someone else in town will take over that operation. According to Roberts, he is clos- ing the business because it wasn't making money. He plan s to move out-of-state.
