The legislation is based on Campaign Finance legislation used in Pittsburgh. It fixes the contribution limit to the federal limits, currently there are no limits – this would limit individuals to $2,900 to campaign, eliminate stacking, limit PAC Contributions to $5000 a candidate. Contributions could not exceed the limitations that are in effect and published by the Federal Election Commission as of the first day of that same calendar year.
