Campaign Finance Reform - Measure 107 implementation
Measure 107 passed with 78% of the electorate's support, truly a mandate for meaningful campaign finance reform. Representative Salinas has emerged as a sponsor and champion of CFR through House Bill 3343. This will be an uphill struggle, money latches on!!
At this point the coalition is seeking additional sponsors for the bill. Representative Rayfield has resuscitated older bills - but Rayfield's bills have many loopholes, such as unlimited number of caucuses, poor disclosure requirements, etc.
