First priority for the new Congress: Restoring democracy [Op-Ed]

Enacting a bold package of democracy reforms will be the top priority for the incoming House majority. A key pillar of this legislation will be creating a campaign finance system centered on a small-donor match. In an op-ed, members of the incoming House majority urged that “[w]e must also empower hard-working Americans in our democracy by building a 21st-century campaign-finance system — combining small-donor incentives and matching support — to increase and multiply the power of small donors.” Although there may be an uphill battle in enacting these reforms federally, there is an opportunity to put them into action on the state level.
