SB 1107:

Lifting ban on public financing of elections

Author: Senator Ben Allen

Citizen-funded elections are a practical, proven reform that puts voters in control of democracy, instead of big political donors. SB 1107 (Allen) amends the Political Reform Act of 1974 to lift the state’s ban on public financing of campaigns, allowing cities and the state to empower small donors with matching public funds and giving voters and local leaders the ability to counter the power of big money in politics.

About California Environmental Voters

California Environmental Voters (formerly the California League of Conservation Voters) believes the climate crisis is here and this moment requires transformative change. California has the policy solutions to stop climate change but lacks the political will to do it at the rate and scale that’s necessary. EnviroVoters exists to build the political power to solve the climate crisis, advance justice, and create a roadmap for global action. We organize voters, elect and train candidates, and hold lawmakers accountable for bold policy change. We won’t stop until we have resilient, healthy, thriving communities, and a democracy and economy that is just and sustainable for all.
