The DC Fair Elections Bill was reintroduced today in DC Council. This legislation would make matching funds available to candidates who seek small donations and reject campaign contributions from Big Business.
We would like to see a ban on “dark money” and regulations that assure full and open disclosure.
We join the DC Fair Elections Coalition in support of legislation to empower small donors and to reduce the influence of special interests in DC elections.
