Clean Money bill clears first hurdle

Thanks to all of you who sent letters to the Assembly Elections Committee in support of AB 583 — word is it passed, 4-3, and is now on its way to the Appropriations Committee.
This was an important first step in our effort to enact real progressive change in California, and we will be keeping you posted and giving you opportunities to take action as the bill moves through the process.
And of course a big thank-you to the Democrats on the Elections Committee who showed real leadership by voting in favor of the bill: Assembly members Johan Klehs (D-Hayward), Betty Karnette (D-Long Beach), Mark Leno (D-SF), and Lloyd Levine (D-Van Nuys).
