Senate Bill 1571, recently passed by the legislature, now requires all statewide candidate committees to file quarterly campaign finance reports for the 48 months preceding the election. Because the legislation has an emergency clause, the new law became effective immediately upon the Governor signing it on April 8, 2024. In accordance with this new legislation, any committees registered under 2026 or 2028 Election Cycles are required to file campaign finance reports as they come due, beginning with the 2024 1st Quarter report, which is due by 11:59 pm on April 15, 2024.
