The ACLU of Maryland supports SB 374, which would allow for the public financing of campaigns. Public financing would make public officials more accountable to voters in general and less beholden to the often-narrow economic interests of a few big contributors. It would also allow public officials to spend more time doing their jobs instead of raising money.
