SB 892 which would require that political committees must disclose on their campaign finance reports the purpose of each expenditure including the candidate on whose behalf the money is being spent.
For too long, big money, special interest groups have been running Tallahassee. Our elected representatives are selling influence and power to the highest bidders. In Florida, legislators bypass campaign limits by establishing Political Committees (PCs). These entities may accept unlimited contributions and make unlimited expenditures to fund their own political agendas. This money is used to wield power over other legislators by purchasing their allegiance to legislative leadership and not the constituents who elect them.
SB 892 would be an important first step in bringing more transparency to Florida’s campaign finance laws. Unfortunately, those holding power in Tallahassee do not want this bill to even be debated in committee. This means we need to make our voices heard... and in big numbers.
We, the people of Florida, are losing our ability to influence legislation vital to our best interests. We must make it clear, that our representatives are beholden to us and not the almighty dollar of special interest groups. The time to act is now.
