California regulator will revisit long-running ban on crypto donations on May 19

A California state regulator may be looking at overturning a ban on cryptocurrency donations to political campaigns which has been in effect since 2018.

According to its May 2022 agenda, California’s Fair Political Practices Commission, or FPPC, has scheduled a “pre-notice discussion” on Thursday on the use of cryptocurrencies f campaign contributions in the state. The commission said it will be considering drafting amendments to its regulations requiring that “no contribution may be made or received in cryptocurrency.”
