Subject: SB 52, the CA DISCLOSE Act, has big hearing on Tuesday!
The fight for REAL disclosure in political ads begins on Tuesday
when SB 52, the California DISCLOSE Act, is heard by the Senate Elections
Committee. This is the first in the fight to shine a bright light on
unlimited anonymous spending on political campaigns.
One look at how SB 52 will change disclosures on political ads in California
shows how much of a difference it will make - and we why all need to work
together to help it pass.
SB 52 will stop special interests from hiding behind fake names like "Stop
Hidden Taxes" or "Stop Special Interest Money Now". Political ads will be
required to clearly show their three largest funders. Committee websites
will have to show their top ten major funders.
If you can't join us in Sacramento on Tuesday, here are other actions to
take right now:
