Issue Analysis 2: Legislator Occupations: Change or Status Quo After Clean Elections?

This CCP study examines the claim that taxpayer financing programs allow a greater number of “non-traditional” candidates to run for office and win, focusing on legislators in Maine and Arizona before and after their respective programs began.  The report finds no evidence that taxpayer financing in either state has had any impact on the number of legislators from “non-traditional” backgrounds.
