Keep Big Money out of Local Elections.
- Issue: Every year, campaigns get more and more expensive, preventing many qualified candidates from running for office and making it harder to even consider running against an incumbent. A bill currently in the state legislature would reverse this by allowing local governments to institute public financing for local political campaigns. Senate Substitute Bill 6221 passed the full Senate, House Substitute Bill 6221 passed its House committee, and we expect the full House to vote on the bill before March 3.
