Last week, the snow storm caused the Assembly and Senate to cancel session on Wednesday. However, the joint legislative budget hearing on public protection remained scheduled and so through the snow I went to testify because the League is nothing if not persistent.
Persistence pretty aptly describes our testimony that day too. The public protection section of the budget includes the Board of Elections funding and the campaign finance reforms the governor included in the budget this year. Once again, the League urged passage of comprehensive campaign finance reform and for the legislature to pass every campaign finance reform component, particularly enforcement reform.
Read our full testimony here and stay tuned for more updates as we push forward on this long time League issue.
