Cautious Optimism Among Reformers After State Public Campaign Financing Commission Named

In New York state, big donors play an outsized role in financing campaigns. Taking a step toward changing this status quo, Governor Cuomo and legislative leaders announced their appointments to the state’s public financing commission last week.  The commissioners are now tasked with designing a program for the state by December 1.  As the Gotham Gazette reports, “All eyes are now on New York’s commission, which advocates hope will take advantage of the opportunity to implement real, long-sought reforms.”
