Can you make one more call to Sacramento?

Can you make one more call to Sacramento?

THANK YOU for calling your Assemblymember to urge them to support the cap-and-trade legislation. It's most impactful for a legislator to hear from one of their own constituents -- and that's exactly what you've done today.

But it turns out that cap-and-trade isn't the only important bill that has an important deadline next Monday.

The California DISCLOSE Act is a landmark piece of legislation that will forever change advertising for ballot measures and electoral PACs in our state. It will will make it much easier to see the sources of the money pouring into California campaigns. But the bill is in danger of dying by neglect -- the California Senate president needs to refer it to the Elections committee before their meeting next week, and he’s letting it fall by the wayside because of his laser-like focus on cap-and-trade.

We have an incredible opportunity right now to curb the influence of hidden money on our democracy in California. Use this same tool below to call Senate President Kevin de Leon in Sacramento and tell him to make sure that the DISCLOSE Act gets to the Elections committee.

  • When someone picks up, ask them when the DISCLOSE act will be referred to the Senate Elections Committee.
  • Explain that you just called your Assemblymember to tell them to support cap-and-trade, but that cap-and-trade isn't the only bill that needs attention this week.
  • Take a minute to explain that Californians deserve to know who is pouring money into their elections.
