Thank you for contacting your state legislators on SB 153/HB 885 and HB 1088, bills that seek to close the many loopholes created by the Citizens United decision.
Please consider sharing our email to you with others. We need their help too, and they may appreciate the chance to know about this issue and take action.

Five years ago the Supreme Court opened the door to dark money in politics, when it ruled in Citizens United that third-party groups could spend unlimited amounts of money on independent expenditures. Maryland has already seen the impact as these third-party activities surged in 2012 and 2014.
There are two bills before the legislature this session, SB 153/HB 885 and HB 1088, that would help fight back by closing loopholes in our campaign finance law and tightening up standards for these independent campaign activities.
I've asked my state legislators to support this important legislation. Will you join me?
