For the first time in New York history, the governor, Assembly and state Senate all included a public financing system powered by small donors in their preliminary budget recommendations.
But the budget is not yet final — and sources indicate legislators could be wavering — so we have to ramp up the pressure.
Email your Assembly member and state senator right now and demand they keep funding for fair elections in the final New York state budget.
