Say No to Big Money War Chests
AB 84 would allow legislative caucus committees to raise up to $36,500 per year, per contributor and give unlimited amounts to their preferred state candidates. Our lawmakers will be incentivized to fall into line with party leadership even when a position differs from their constituents' interests. In a democracy, voters select their representatives. This bill shifts that dynamic - giving California's legislative leadership, and incumbents in office, the financial power to select their own colleagues.
Please act right away! The Senate Elections Committee is holding a hearing on AB 84 this coming Tuesday, August 14.
