State and Local Reform

Public Citizen is committed to promoting campaign finance reform at the state and local levels as well as at the federal level. State and local jurisdictions are not only the laboratories of democracy when it comes to campaign finance and ethics reform, the greater the numbers of jurisdictions that implement meaningful reform, the harder it is for Congress to ignore. Members of the campaign finance team at Public Citizen have provided research and drafting assistance for campaign finance and ethics legislation for citizens groups and/or legislators in several states, including Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Texas, to name a few, as well as numerous local jurisdictions. Currently, the New Jersey legislature is nearing approval of a pay-to-play (restricting campaign contributions from government contractors) bill drafted with the assistance of Public Citizen.

Because Public Citizen does not accept funds from corporations, professional associations or government agencies, we can remain independent and follow the truth wherever it may lead. But that means we depend on the generosity of concerned citizens like you for the resources to fight on behalf of the public interest. If you would like to help us in our fight, click here.
