WDC testifies against “More Money in Politics” bill
The Democracy Campaign’s director testified today against proposed legislation that would double Wisconsin’s current limits on political donations. That testimony also has been turned into a blog post.

The Senate hearing on Assembly Bill 225 opened with joint testimony from two Racine-area legislators – Democrat Cory Mason and Republican Speaker Robin Vos – singing the praises of the bill that was passed by the Assembly on a bipartisan vote in June. No wonder. The bill would double the yield from this kind of thing.

If you have not already done so, please take a few minutes as soon as you can to contact your senator to share your thoughts about AB 225.
