The California Disclose Act (AB 249) Passed!

AB 249 PASSED
Time Range For Action Alert: 
August 1, 2018 to November 6, 2018

The 2017-18 California legislative session is a wrap!

Because you took action, we’re celebrating some big wins!

The flood of dark money coming into campaigns will be subject to greater transparency with the passage of the Disclose Act, AB 249. And by defeating AB 84 we prevented even more money from compromising our elections.

The swift action of League supporters like you helped put the California Disclose Act on the governor’s desk. Now we need your help one more time to expose the big money funding campaign ads. Tell Governor Brown to sign AB 249 today, because transparency matters: http://bit.ly/SignAB249

The influence of big money in our elections is eroding our democracy. When facing a barrage of manipulative and often dishonest campaign ads, shouldn’t you be able to see who is paying for them? Our democracy is in Governor Brown's hands now—urge him to sign the California Disclose Act into law at http://bit.ly/SignAB249

This bill will:

    Require political ads to clearly show their top three funders.
    Stop ads from hiding true funders behind misleading committee names.
    Apply to television, radio, robocall, online, and print advertising.

A fair democracy depends on informed and active voters—and those voters depend on transparent information.
