Santa Fe Ethics & Campaign Review Board: Comments Filed by CLC regarding Proposed Campaign Finance Changes to Santa Fe Code


Comments filed by the Campaign Legal Center with the Ethics & Campaign Review Board of the City of Santa Fe (NM) regarding proposed campaign finance-related changes to the Santa Fe City Code, scheduled to be considered by the Board at its May 20 meeting.  The proposed changes under consideration by the Board pertain to coordination, disclosure and public financing.  CLC expressed its view that the proposed changes are wholly consistent with Supreme Court and lower court precedent, and wholly consistent with the approaches to these policy issues being taken in other jurisdictions.  For these reasons, CLC strongly encouraged the Board to approve the proposed changes.
