San Francisco Voters Pass the Sunlight on Dark Money Measure
A San Francisco ballot measure intended to increase the restrictions on political contributions for campaign ads won easily on Tuesday.
Proposition F, the Sunlight on Dark Money measure, passed by 76% of the votes.
The proposition only needed a simple majority to pass.
The measure’s passage means greater disclosure of who is behind campaign advertisements paid for by PACs.
The top three largest donors of the committee paying for the advertisement must now disclose the name and amount contributed to the committee.
Proposition F will take effect 10 days after the election results are certified.
