Campaign Transparency

There's a lot you can learn about campaign finances in Nebraska, but there are always loopholes. You can see how much candidates spent and how much they received from donors, but only for amounts over $250. You can find reports on ad buys for candidates, but not if the ads were merely "educational" on the issues and didn't say who to vote for or against. And you can be guaranteed that your donations to campaigns are being used wisely, just don't expect to know if the campaign account balance matches the totals reported by the candidate.

Common Cause Nebraska thinks it's time to do away with the loophole and make sure that real transparency is the standard.
