About AB 700, the California DISCLOSE Act
Fight Dark Money by stopping political ads from deceiving voters about who pays for them!
Voters Need the Right to Know
AB 700 passed the Assembly on an overwhelming bipartisan vote of 60-15 after more than 14,000 people emailed or called their Assemblymembers in only four days before the final vote. More than 54,000 signed petitions for AB 700 so far. Now it moves to the Senate.
No matter what issue you care about — the environment, health care, education, food safety, worker rights, civil rights, or fair taxes — All are dominated by billionaires and special interests that spend unlimited amounts of hidden money to buy elections.
AB 700, the California DISCLOSE Act will free California politics from secret money and set an example for the nation.

AB 700 is consistent with and fits together with the Voters' Right to Know initiative. Both have nearly exactly the same provisions to implement that California DISCLOSE Act's on-ad disclosure rules. The difference is that the Voters' Right to Know Act also gives California a constitutional right to know the true sources of political spending and has other disclosure an anti-corruption reforms, but must first qualify for the ballot and then be passed by the voters in November 2016.
The legislature shouldn't wait for the voters to pass the Voters' Right to Know Act. They should put the California DISCLOSE Act into law immediately by passing AB 700!
