Providing A Federal Campaign Level Playing Field
WHEREAS there is a great amount of concern that the recent Supreme Court decision on corporate campaign contributions will unleash a torrent of corporate money greater that any campaign expenditures totals in United States history;and
WHEREAS corporate campaign contributions (many made under the guise of 501c organizations) are currently not being adequately or promptly reported; and
WHEREAS the American People are confused by an overly complex system of campaign regulations and angered that small contributors are punished severely for minor inadvertent violations of campaign laws while large contributors give hundreds of millions of dollars in contributions that are not always reported.
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Los Angeles County Democratic Party calls on the Congress of the United States to reform the federal campaign laws so that we have a level playing field with laws that have reasonable spending limits and reporting requirements for all, and
THEREFORE BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Los Angeles County Democratic Party send copies of this resolution to the members of the California Congressional Delegation.
