Do the message in your own words by taking some of the issues listed.</b> Or just send a note saying you are a constituent and you strongly oppose this bill. Please do this now and thank you for doing it.
This measure is purposefully designed to undermine the Arizona Citizens Clean Elections Act and confuse voters. The Clean Elections Act should remain as it is. The monies should not be sent to the General Fund.
Clean Elections funds should not be sent to the General Fund to be used for something besides voter education. If the Legislature wants to repeal Clean Elections, then it should ask the voters directly to do that.
This bill would retain the name of Clean Elections Fund but no money would go into the program. There would be no voter education guide or debates that allow voters to hear from candidates.
Clean Elections allows candidates to run independent of private money and special interests, shielding themselves from the Pay 2 Play system that corrupts our democracy.
Clean Elections provides valuable voter outreach and increases voter turnout.
Clean Elections holds cheaters accountable through independent, non-partisan oversight.
The voters approved this Act in 1998 and it should stay in place to insure non-partisan enforcement of campaign finance laws by providing information on those seeking to influence elections.
