The ACLU of Maryland supports HB 785, which establishes a system of public campaign financing.  Public campaign financing enhances the accountability of public officials to general voters, so they are thereby less obliged to the interests of high-dollar contributors.  Public campaign financing allows candidates and officials to invest their time and energies into investigating and remedying the concerns of the electorate, not seeking campaign contributions.
