PAGE EIGHT Election Law Overhaul Urged ' Horch Act's Author : Soys "Clean Politics" Act Has Been Nullified 1 WASHINGTON, Dec. 11. (UP) — Sen. Crirl Hntch, (Dem., N, M.) •uthor of the Hatclt "clean poll- tics" act, said today the new Congress should overhaul Icdcral election laws nnd set n "rcnsouiible llnilt" on campaign contrlbu'lons and expenditures. -i The Hatch act's $5,000 limit on contributions has been "almost ren- • dcred negatory," the senator said. "My own suggestion is that a complete and thorough study if all our •election laws be inaugurated in Ihc lioxt. Congress, that they he I overhauled and revised, that loopholes be plugged, and n reasonable limit fixed on both contributions and expenditures." - While the Hatch act ("--bids ro!i- Irlbutlons of more triniT* $5,000 lo any political committee, it does noi restrict the number of committees to which' $5,000 contributions may be given. . Because ol'.this loophole, Hatrti Siiid, the only real limit becomes the amount of ready cash In a contributor's purse. • He emphasized, however, Ih.U. "weak or rutlle" as It may be, the restriction must be kept until Congress legislates a better one, "It should not be repealed or abandoned now," he said.
