Election funding: the committee stage

Parliament is back today for its final session of the year, and the chief order of business is the final stages of the Electoral Finance Bill. While National has said they won't try and fillibuster and that they will instead be constructive, given the tenor of their proposed amendments, I'll believe that when I see it.

The debate should kick off sometime around 16:30. I won't be liveblogging this one, as I'm still rather busy, but you can always watch it live here.

Update (16:32): The committee stage has just started.
