Council member Tommy Wells plans to introduce two bills Tuesday, one dealing with expensive city-leased SUVs and another targeting D.C.'s campaign finance rules.
Wells is proposing to ban the city from procuring luxury SUVs as well as cut back on the number of vehicles in the city's fleet. In February Council Chairman Kwame Brown was criticized for requesting a fully loaded, $2,000-a-month Lincoln Navigator.
Wells' other bill would address a number of issues with the city's campaign finance rules. It would prohibit corporations from using multiple subsidiaries to bundle campaign cash to candidates, a common occurrence during every campaign season.
The measure would also tackle some more recent problems: It would establish stricter reporting requirements for money raised for transition and inauguration efforts, and it also make sure unspent constituent service funds aren't used for political favors.
