CCP VP at New York roundtable on campaign finance regulation

CCP Vice President Steve Hoersting is in Rome, New York participating in a roundtable discussion on campaign finance regulation with the New York State Senate Elections Committee at 10:30 a.m Friday.  New York is considering overhauling their campaign finance regulations. More details on the proposal can be found HERE.

Hoersting’s remarks will focus on five major issues related to campaign finance regulation:

-Disclosure

-Transparency

-Enforcement

-Contribution Limits

-Government Subsidies 

Notably, Hoersting will highlight that reduced contribution limits protect incumbents, favor wealthy candidates, and divert political spending to independent advocacy organizations like "527" groups. 

Earlier this week CCP published an overview of the proposed overhaul of New York’s campaign finance regulations.  You can read the overview by clicking HERE.
