Baltimore ready to join the movement for public election financing

On Monday, the Baltimore City Council passed legislation to create a public financing program for local elections. Unless the mayor rejects the bill – a reportedly unlikely scenario – the program will go into effect for the 2024 municipal campaigns. Under the legislation, candidates will receive a match on small-dollar contributions in exchange for rejecting contributions from PACs, corporations, unions, and individual contributions greater than $150.
