CLC Letter in Opposition to AB 84


Campaign Legal Center (CLC) submitted a letter to the California Senate opposing AB 84, which would amend the Political Reform Act (“PRA”) to allow party leaders in the Senate and Assembly to establish “legislative caucus committees” subject to the same fundraising rules as state and county political party committees. AB 84 would largely annul important distinctions between contribution limits for candidates and political parties, strengthen the position of incumbents, and undermine key purposes of the PRA.
