SHERIDAN, Wyo. (AP) - Lawmakers are having second thoughts about placing caps on political action committee spending in Wyoming.

The Joint Corporations, Appropriations and Political Subdivisions Interim Committee will consider a bill draft repealing a section of state law that was enacted in 2013.

Under the new provision, beginning Jan. 1, direct or indirect PAC contributions will be capped at $7,500 to any statewide candidate and at $3,000 to any other candidate.

Currently there is no cap.

Republican Sen. Charlie Scott, of Casper, tells the Casper Star-Tribune (https://bit.ly/1ozWDdZ ) that the cap wouldn’t stop PAC spending because people can easily get around the law by forming another PAC.
