Suozzi's Campaing Finance Proposal

Capitol Confidential reports on Suozzi's recent campaing finance plan:

*Public matching funds
*$2,100 individual contribution limit for all offices
*Ban on contributions to non-candidate committees and political parties by unions, corporations, partnerships and LLCs
*Ban on gifts from all registered lobbyists
*Prohibition on “rolling over” funds from one campaign to another

Capitol Confidential notes that Suozzi himself has "rolled over" funds -- more than $3 million from his county executive campaign committee to his gubernatorial committee.
