Fair Elections Now Act
Just $6 Campaign Announces Support for Fair Elections Now Act
Nonpartisan Organization Says Bill Upholds Free Speech
Concord, NH. â€“ Americans for Campaign Reform (ACR), who launched the â€œJust $6â€ grassroots movement for public funding, has announced its support for the Fair Elections Now Act that proposes voluntary public funding for all Senate races. Senators Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Arlen Specter (R-PA) introduced the bipartisan legislation as a way to restore public confidence in the election process.
The legislation would create a voluntary system through which participating Senate candidatesâ€“â€“those who establish their credibility by collecting enough qualifying contributions and who then pledge not to accept private contributions â€“â€“would receive public funds for primary and general elections. Participants would also be eligible for free media vouchers and discounted commercial advertising rates.
