The Vermont Senate passed a campaign finance bill Thursday.
MONTPELIER, Vt. - The Vermont Senate passed a campaign finance bill Thursday.

The bill passed by a 20-8 vote. The Vermont House passed the bill last week by a 124-15 vote.

The compromised bill that came out of conference committee would raise the donation limits for statewide candidates to $4,000. It would lower the limits for local elections, $1,500 for Senate candidates and $1,000 for House candidates.

Vermont hasn’t had a campaign finance law since 2006.
