Employee-funded political action committees (PACs) are the best example of campaign finance reform that works. Corporate and association PACs are transparent, highly regulated and provide a platform for employee voices to be heard.

Campaign Finance Reform that Works

“The media and activists are right to expect businesses to take a close look at which politicians they support and whether that support is warranted. But they’re wrong to call for the banning of one of the most heavily regulated, fairest and most accepted means of funding elections.”

Op-ed by Council President Doug Pinkham in Roll Call, Jan. 15, 2021

“If reformers want to improve transparency and honesty, limit corruption, and encourage a system in which bipartisanship is possible, they ought to recognize that PACs reflect a rare attribute in Washington: campaign finance reform that works.”
