Strengthen Maine's Clean Election Act: The courts and lawmakers have opened the door to big money in our elections by weakening Clean Elections. This initiative will restore and fully fund Maine's Clean Elections law so everyone can be represented in our democracy - not just the wealthy.
Require Dark Money Groups to Disclose Top Donors: The initiative will require outside groups to list their top funders on political ads. That way Maine people will know who is trying to influence their vote.
Disclose Governor-Elect Fundraising: Under today's law, an incoming governor can raise unlimited contributions from lobbyists and special interests to pay for inaugural parties and transition expenses with no public disclosure. The initiative will close this loophole and provide transparency to the activities of our top office holder.
Increase Fines & Penalties for Campaign Finance Law Violations" To deter violations and increase accountability, the initiative calls for significantly higher penalties so that they are never considered a mere "cost of doing business."
Close a Corporate Tax Loophole: Everyday people can't write massive campaign checks or hire high-priced lobbyists to get special tax breaks. To fully fund Clean Elections this initiative will close a wasteful corporate tax loophole.
