Time Range For Action Alert:August 10, 2018 to October 28, 2018
Say No to Big Money War Chests
**UPDATE - On Aug. 27, the bill was ordered to the inactive file at the request of Democratic Sen. Bill Monning of Culver City, essentially neutralizing it for the year.**
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.
Update August 20, 2018 - Bill has advanced to the floor.
We need your help to double down and stop AB 84 in these last days of the session. Please email your senator and Assembly member today!
