Comments

Michael Albin writes:

Thank you, Del Suetterlein. If passed into law, PACs like energy giants and unions like the teachers' unions will not be able to hide their contributions until after the elections. The law will give voters a clear view of group influence not only on candidates but also on bond referendums, a particularly obnoxious form of county and state "fund raising."
