Every election cycle – even in small, local races – Montana voters are inundated with phone calls, ads and mailers that attack some candidates and support others. These groups have positive-sounding names, but who are they? Where are these groups based? Where do they get their money? Are they funded by Montanans or out-of-state interests? What are they trying to achieve?
No one knows because these groups are not required to disclose this information. As a result, our political process gets hijacked by wealthy, (sometimes out-of-state) groups with a lot of money.
The Montana Disclose Act is supported by:
You can help shine a light on dark money by supporting the Montana Disclose Act (SB 289) to:
- Update Montana’s campaign law to provide voters with more information on dark money political groups,
- Require virtually any group that spends money to support or oppose a candidate or ballot issue to disclose its donors and campaign expenditures, and
- Require that legislative and district candidates file campaign finance reports electronically.
Time is running out - the Montana Legislature is considering SB 289 and will be taking action in the coming days.
