CLC Comments on Arizona Rulemaking Regarding the Voters' Right to Know Act (Prop 211)


Campaign Legal Center submitted public comments to the Arizona Citizens Clean Elections Commission regarding the first round of proposed rules implementing the Voters’ Right to Know Act, also known as Prop 211. The Act requires major campaign media spenders to disclose the original sources of large donations they receive, including information about persons who act as intermediaries between the original sources of money and the spender. Those spenders must also put their donors on notice that their money may be spent to influence elections and give them an opportunity to opt out of having their donations so used. CLC’s comments include a discussion of the need for regulatory guidance, suggested clarifications and revisions for the proposed rules, and recommendations for additional regulations.
