Exciting Topics & Activities at 2019 Clean Money Democracy Rally & Summit
We’ll start with a big rally including remarks from the authors of SB 47, SB 636, and AB 1784, plus other inspirational speakers, and a discussion of the details of our powerful bills and the next steps for each. If you can stay until 5:30pm, we’ll have training and planning sessions for our next big push!
- SB 47 (Allen), the Petition DISCLOSE Act. Currently, it’s legal for Big Money to buy a spot on the ballot for their initiatives while misleading voters about who’s paying to collect signatures. SB 47 will stop this by requiring that initiative circulators show you the official list of who’s funding the effort — before you sign to put the initiative on the ballot.
- SB 636 (Stern), the Ballot DISCLOSE Act. Every election, Californians vote on ballot measures that greatly change daily life, yet they often don’t know key facts about them like who’s officially for and against. SB 636 will make sure every voter sees this information that Californians want by printing a short list of official endorsers and official opponents next to each measure right on the ballot you use to vote.
- AB 1784 (Santiago-Chiu-Gonzalez), the secure the VOTE Act. Our elections are under attack and the 2017 DEF CON security convention was able to breach every voting system used in the United States! AB 1784 will help address this and ensure every vote is counted accurately, plus save millions of dollars. It does this by funding publicly owned, transparent Open-Source Paper Ballot voting systems to replace the privately owned proprietary software from corporate vendors that are used now.
- AB 1217 (Mullin), the Issue Ad DISCLOSE Act. AB 1217 brings much needed disclosure to a type of political advertisement that Big Money can still anonymously use in California to try to sway the public and legislature — “issue lobbying ads” and sham issue ads. AB 1217 will require these ads to list their top 3 funders just like ballot measure ads and independent expenditures already do, thanks to AB 249 & AB 2188.
