Colorado Secretary of State Calls for Campaign Finance Transparency
Secretary of State Jena Griswold announced her campaign finance policy priorities in front of the Colorado House State, Veterans, and Military Affairs Committee at the January 17 committee hearing.
Shedding light on secret political spending, Griswold’s policy agenda calls for stronger disclosure by expanding the “paid for by” disclosure requirements on political advertisements and exercising the Secretary of State’s audit and enforcement power to act on campaign finance, ballot access and lobbyist violations.
Griswold’s agenda also seeks to prevent potential candidates from raising unchecked and uncapped contributions into “independent” committees and ensure that independent expenditure and other committees can be held accountable for campaign finance violations.
Additionally, Griswold seeks to end the influence of powerful interest groups and lobbyists over candidates and elected officials through contributions to political entities.
