Capitol Watch: Lawmakers Could Fine-Tune Public Funding Plan

The New York Public Campaign Financing Commission has until tomorrow, December 1, 2019, to issue its recommendations for a statewide public financing program. After a final meeting last Monday, New Yorkers know the outlines of the plan likely to be announced. It will involve a match on contributions of $250 or less for both statewide and legislative offices. The commission’s recommendations will also lower contribution limits. The plan will become law unless lawmakers return for a special session in December. Tweaks in the 2020 legislative session are also possible.
