Comments

Valerie Garner writes:

This bill goes hand and hand with HB2098. If legislators have nothing to hide then this bill should fly through the HOD.

If they fear uncovering use of their campaign funds for other then performing their duties or re-election then they will wimp out and leave it in the subcommittee.

Do you want our trust or not?
