Minnesota's political refund program back on books
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — After a four-year hiatus, a program that gives a small refund to people who donate to political campaigns resumes in Minnesota.
The political contribution refund is meant to incent small givers and to encourage candidates to agree to spending limits. Candidates who abide by the limits are eligible for a campaign subsidy and can offer donors a possible refund.
The program was suspended in 2009 as part of state budget cutting.
