NYC Campaign Finance Board Certifies First Phase of "Doing Business" Database

January 4, 2008

At a meeting held yesterday, the Campaign Finance Board announced its certification of the first phase of the "doing business" database. Pursuant to Local Law 34 passed in July 2007, city candidates are restricted from accepting contributions from persons deemed to be "doing business" with the city. The restricted contribution limits take effect 30 days after each phase of certification; thus restricted limits apply to those included in this phase of the database on February 2, 2008. The certified component of the database contains information about entities and individuals holding City contracts, franchises, and concessions, as well as registered City lobbyists. The CFB's full report can be found here.
