Dozens of Dem lawmakers set expectations for campaign commission

From Chris Bragg in the Times Union: “A group of 39 Democratic state lawmakers — 17 senators and 22 Assembly members — have asked the commission tasked with rewriting New York’s campaign laws to establish lower contribution limits, create oversight outside of the state Board of Elections, and maintain the current system empowering minor political parties.

The outreach by such a sizable legislative coalition carries significance because if final policies enacted by the Public Campaign Financing Commission are unacceptable to enough legislators, the Senate and Assembly could reconvene before the end of 2019 to amend aspects of the system. Otherwise, the measures put forth by the commission, due Dec. 1, will be legally binding.”
