Push for a Publicly Funded Campaign Finance System


LIPC Director Lisa Tyson Discussing a new coalition that has formed to push for publicly funded elections in the state. Members of “Fair Elections for New York” want lawmakers to enact three reforms: increase the power of small donations, limit the influence of big money, and, make it easier to vote through things like early voting and same day registration.

The coalition is made up of labor unions and pro-Democrat groups, but also some good government groups and charities. Members are hopeful that with Democrats in control in 2019, these reforms will get passed.
