Legislators decry elimination of Minnesota’s campaign finance reforms: Repeal would mean there would be NO limits on spending for future elections

ST. PAUL, MN – Sen. Carolyn Laine (DFL-Columbia Heights) and Sen. John Marty (DFL-Roseville) will be holding a news conference tomorrow to help bring attention to the Republican efforts to repeal Minnesota’s long-standing campaign finance laws, including candidate spending limits and other reforms that were enacted in response to the Watergate scandal.

WHO: Sen. Carolyn Laine, Sen. John Marty and two Minnesota League of Women Voters representatives.

WHAT: Alerting the public to proposed elimination of Minnesota’s respected campaign finance reforms.

WHEN: Wednesday, May 3 at 10:00 a.m.
