RE: Assembly Bill 10 –Behested Payments and Economic Interest Disclosures – SUPPORT

Dear Assembly Member Gatto, On behalf of California Common Cause and our members, I am writing with a letter of support for Assembly Bill 10, which would make several significant changes to the Political Reform Act. Transparency and disclosure are essential to a healthy democracy. Voters need access to accurate information about candidates and elected officials financial interests, investments and sources of income. Greater transparency and disclosure help prevent the appearance of corruption and restore the public trust.
