Campaign Finance Reform

The League’s Campaign Finance Reform Action Group works to educate elected officials and the general public on the influence big campaign donors and allies have on public policy.  It also worked to pass an ordinance that banned superPACs and limited foreign investment in our local elections.  We accomplished that goal on October 5, 2017.  The ordinance went into effect on January 1, 2018.

An additional objective now is to ensure effective implementation and enforcement of that ordinance.  We will also work with other Leagues in their efforts to further Campaign Finance Reform.
