FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- A new study says Kentucky's campaign finance laws governing political candidates have improved, but not enough to keep the state from slipping in national rankings.
The California-based Campaign Disclosure Project has Kentucky ranked 21 nationally with an overall grade of B-. That's slightly better than the C+ Kentucky got in 2007, but still a notch lower compared to other improved states.
Kentucky scored high for its campaign disclosure requirements, but got low marks because the state does not require electronic filing of all statewide and legislative candidates who raise at least $25,000.
