But changes in media practice pale in comparison to the urgent need for campaign finance reform. Maryland allows corporate donations directly to candidates, which are banned by federal law and more than 20 other states, and the state does not require LLCs to file ownership information, making it hard to determine who is behind what contributions. Maryland’s contribution limit for local offices is also $6,000, compared to about $1,200 in states like Colorado and Delaware. Plus, a wealthy donor can give up to $18,000 (25 percent of Maryland’s median household income) to a single gubernatorial campaign by giving to each of three finance committees: one for governor, one for lieutenant governor and one for the joint ticket. Maryland’s high limits are exacerbated by a Supreme Court decision (McCutcheon v. FEC (2014), which erased ceilings — including a $10,000 cap in Maryland — on total giving by a single donor.
