Public finance panel urged to provide more money in low-income districts

During today’s hearing of the Public Campaign Financing Commission, one policy concern became clear: how to design a public financing program that takes into consideration the socioeconomic diversity of the state.  Other discussions that came up over the course of the day-long hearing included lowering the state’s high contribution limits, regulating contributions from entities doing business with the state, and establishing incentives for candidates to opt into what will be a voluntary program.
