Issue Analysis 1: Do ‘Clean Elections’ Reduce Lobbyist and Special Interest Influence?

March 27, 2008   •  By Laura Renz   •    •  

This CCP report that examines the number of lobbyist registrations in Arizona and Maine, the two states with the longest running public financing programs.  Advocates for taxpayer financed campaigns often argue that their programs remove the threat of special interest influence, and presumably the number of lobbyists, but this research shows no relationship between taxpayer financed campaigns and the number of registered lobbyists.
