RE: Campaign Finance Reform
Thank you for contacting my office to express your support for Assembly Bill 583, which would create a voluntary system of publicly-funded campaigns for elected statewide and legislative offices. The California Clean Money and Fair Elections Act is based upon legislation enacted in Arizona and Maine.
I support AB 583. I look forward to seeing our democratic system become more accessible to candidates. The Senate Rules Committee, on which I serve as Chair, recently referred AB 583 to the Senate Elections, Reapportionment and Constitutional Amendments Committee for consideration. The bill will be heard in the Elections Committee on April 19th.
For updates on AB 583 or my other legislative activities, please visit my website at www.sen.ca.gov/perata.
Thank you for taking the time to share your views. As always, I value your input.
