Proper Role for Money
How We Can Change the Rules: Create a Proper Role for Money in Politics
Big money, while still important, more transparent and less linked to lobbying and jobs.
In February 2018, the city of Chicago and all of Cook County voted to adopt a binding Anti-Corruption Act to limit the role of money in our political system. While more than 30 cities have passed these Anti-Corruption initiatives since 2014, this represents the largest population to do so. This success reflects the growing momentum of this grass roots movement.
Provisions of the Anti-Corruption Act include:
• Prohibit lobbyist contribution bundling
• Extend revolving door limitation for members of Congress and staff
• Seek to prohibit fundraising during congressional working hours
• Require full transparency on fundraising and spending
• FEC enforce the existing rules for Super Pac coordination and lobbying disclosure
