1. Equipment, supplies, or other materials purchased with campaign funds or received in-kind are campaign property. Campaign property belongs to the candidate's committee and not to the candidate. Campaign property which has a value of five hundred dollars or more at the time it is acquired by the committee shall be separately disclosed as committee inventory on reports filed pursuant to section 56.6, including a declaration of the approximate current value of the property. Such property shall continue to be reported as committee inventory until it is disposed of by the committee or until the property has a residual value of less than one hundred dollars. However, consumable campaign property is not required to be reported as committee inventory, regardless of the initial value of the consumable campaign property. "Consumable campaign property" means stationery, yard signs, and other campaign materials which have been permanently imprinted to be specific to a candidate or election.
2. Upon dissolution of the candidate's committee, a report accounting for the disposition of all items of campaign property, excluding consumable campaign property, having a residual value of one hundred dollars or more shall be filed with the board. Campaign property, excluding consumable campaign property, having a residual value of one hundred dollars or more shall be disposed of by one of the following methods:
a. Sale of the property at fair market value, in which case the proceeds shall be treated the same as other campaign funds.
b. Donation of the property under one of the options for transferring campaign funds set forth in section 56.42.
