CLC Statement for NY Public Campaign Financing Commission


On September 18, 2019, CLC submitted this statement to the Public Campaign Financing Commission in the State of New York. The statement urges the Commission to design the state’s new public financing program with the goal of creating a viable long-term program. This goal would be supported by strong administrative tools for providing outreach and education for New Yorkers, effective bookkeeping and auditing requirements, and regular updates to the program. CLC’s statement highlights how an effective new public financing program can increase voter engagement with candidates.
