Gov. Chris Sununu vetoed a series of Democratically-backed election finance reform laws Wednesday, blocking attempts at increased transparency and oversight while citing free speech considerations.
As part of a batch of 42 bills signed and 10 vetoed, Sununu struck down Senate Bill 156, a bill supporters said would close the “LLC loophole.” That bill would remove the ability for members of limited liability companies to donate to candidates through their LLC without hitting individual contribution limits. The legislation would require those donations to attach to the donors’ names, imposing a de facto cap; it would also subject those LLCs whose members donate to public disclosures of members.
