California Common Cause was a sponsor of the bill, along with the California Business Roundtable.

RE: Senate Bill 1349 (Hertzberg) – Cal-Access Modernization – SUPPORT

Dear Chair Allen, The undersigned organizations write to support Senate Bill 1349, which would direct the Secretary of State to modernize Cal-Access, California’s online system for campaign finance filing and disclosure. This necessary upgrade would make the system more reliable, better inform voters, and simplify compliance by campaigns. Modernizing Cal-Access would increase the transparency of campaign financing without requiring new disclosure rules, simply by providing easier public access to the information that campaigns already report.
