The League and coalition groups sent a letter to the House of Representatives urging them to oppose repeal of presidential public financing. Repeal legislation would eliminate a system which has given average citizens and small donors a critically important role to play in funding our presidential campaigns.
Elections cost money. But money shouldn't be able to buy elections. Fair and clean elections, determined by the votes of American citizens, should be at the center of our democracy. The League supports legislation that will enhance disclosure, combat corruption and fix the public financing system.
