State Rep. Rida Cabanilla has been fined $500 by the state Campaign Spending Commission for filing an inaccurate or false campaign-finance report.
Cabanilla held a fundraiser in March but reported raising no money when she filed her campaign-finance report for the first half of the year. She subsequently reported raising $5,830.
Cabanilla was named House majority floor leader in October after Rep. Karen Awana resigned the leadership post after facing campaign-finance violations.
The Campaign Spending Commission imposed the fine at its meeting last Wednesday.
