FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Candidates for governor who donate at least $1 million to their own campaigns would automatically increase the contribution limits of their opponents under a bill the Kentucky House approved Monday.

Under the bill, sponsored by House Speaker Greg Stumbo, when a candidate for governor donates at least $1 million to his or her campaign, the contribution limits for every other candidate would increase to $2,500 from $1,000.

Rep. Joseph Fischer, R-Fort Thomas, said he voted against the bill because the contribution limits would not change for the candidate who donated $1 million to his or her campaign.

The bill now heads to the Republican-controlled Senate.

The legislation is HB 366.
