NEXT STEPS ON AB 583 -- CLEAN MONEY/FAIR ELECTIONS
January 13, 2006
Now's the time! Add your voice to the demands for Clean Money!
On Tuesday, January 10, the Assembly Elections Committee voted 4-3 to pass AB 583, the Clean Money bill, to the Appropriations Committee. The Appropriations Committee vote may come as early as Wednesday, January 18! If the bill passes, it will go to an Assembly floor vote the following week. In order for AB 583 to remain viable, it must pass out of the Assembly to the Senate by the end of this month.
Legislative support, as measured by the number of coauthors of the bill, continues to grow. There are now 28 coauthors.
ACTION NEEDED: Please contact Assembly Speaker Fabian Nuñez and your Assembly Member to ask them to support AB 583, the California Clean Money and Fair Elections Act. They need to hear that people across California want them to change the way elections are financed in California by passing this sweeping reform. If your representative serves on the Assembly Appropriations Committee (see list below), it is especially important for you to write and/or call before the vote on January 18.
Read our earlier Call to Action on AB 583, including "points to make" for your letter or call. But remember that it can be as easy as saying "I'm calling to ask that Speaker Nuñez strongly support AB 583, the Clean Money bill." It just takes a minute!
