AB 14, the new California DISCLOSE Act Introduced by Assemblymembers Jimmy Gomez and Marc Levine!
"It shouldn't be legal to mislead voters — period," said Assemblymember Jimmy Gomez (D-Northeast Los Angeles). "And as I said in August, I won't rest until it's stopped. I vowed that the California DISCLOSE Act will be back, because voters deserve transparency in elections. Now California is going to lead the nation to get it in political ads."
“Californians deserve to be told the truth about who is asking for their vote,” said Assemblymember Marc Levine (D-San Rafael). “PACs and independent expenditures result in voters getting bombarded with mail, commercials, and advertisements. AB 14 will help inform voters on who is truly trying to influence their vote.”
“We've just gone through an election that showed we need transparency and disclosure more than ever, which is why I'm optimistic the California DISCLOSE Act will be successful this year,” said Senator Ben Allen (D-Santa Monica), chair of the Senate Elections Committee and a Principal Coauthor of AB 14.
