The Greens, in a bill to be introduced by Balmain MP Jamie Parker next week, are pushing for a 10-fold increase to penalties for breaches of donations laws to $110,000, criminal sanctions and an increase to the period within which prosecutions may be pursued, from three years to 10 years.
The party also wants the amount of money that can be spent in each seat reduced, smaller caps on donations to parties and candidates, and more regular reporting of donations.
