Cuomo seeks to reduce New York’s sky-high campaign donation limits

Governor Cuomo is putting campaign finance reform front and center in his 2019 agenda. During his combined State of the State and budget address on January 15, he recognized that, “[f]or far too long, rich corporations and the wealthiest one percent have influenced our elections and drowned out the voices of ordinary New Yorkers. . . . Now is the time to implement real campaign finance reform in New York.” The Governor’s proposals include enacting a small donor match public financing system and lowering campaign contribution limits.
