SB 1107 has passed the Assembly and is back in the Senate for one final vote. This important bill gives local governments the flexibility to fight big money in politics and bring greater accountability to our elections. Help us reform California election funding!
Please urge your Senator to vote yes on SB 1107 to help increase voter participation, restore public trust, and strengthen our representative democracy.
SB 1107 will remove a 28-year-old ban on public financing of campaigns, helping state and local governments level the playing field for those wishing to run for public office. This bill will support election innovation, including voluntary programs like those already in place in six California charter cities. It does not create any programs or raise any taxes or fees.
