AB 700, the California DISCLOSE Act -- California Clean Money Campaign

AB 700, the 2015 California DISCLOSE Act Introduced by Assemblymembers Jimmy Gomez and Marc Levine!


"The goal of this legislation is to press for greater transparency at who's trying to hide behind these magnificently titled political committees, expose their true identities and motivations," said Assemblymember Jimmy Gomez (D-Northeast Los Angeles).  "Voters deserve to know."

“It is important that the voters know the real source of political spending,” said Assemblymember Marc Levine (D-San Rafael).  “PACs and independent expenditures result in voters getting bombarded with mail, commercials, and advertisements.  AB 700 will help inform voters on who is truly trying to influence their vote.”

AB 700, the California DISCLOSE Act

Citizens United unleashed unlimited, anonymous corporate spending on campaigns nationwide.  That's why we're sponsoring the California DISCLOSE Act:

• Lets voters know who really is paying for political ads — on the ads themselves.

• Ballot measure ads will have to clearly and prominently list their three largest funders.

• "Follow-the-money" disclosure stops ads from deceiving voters about who pays.

• Applies to television ads, radio ads, robocalls, and print advertising.
