Amends the Election Code. Provides that political committee funds may be used for certain child care or dependent elder home care expenses that are necessary for the fulfillment of political, governmental, or public policy duties, activities, or purposes. Effective immediately.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Provides that political committee funds may be used for care of a dependent family member (rather than dependent elder home care expenses) that are necessary for the fulfillment of political, governmental, or public policy duties, activities, or purposes. Removes language allowing for the expenditure regardless of whether the need for child care or dependent elder home care predated the campaign or term of office. Provides that "care of a dependent family member" includes caregiving, personal care, adult day services, and home health services for elderly persons and persons with an illness, injury, or disability who require assistance in caring for themselves.
