VICTORY: Gov. Brown signs S.B. 27, the bill to force dark money non-profits to reveal their funders in California elections
Nonprofits linked to the Koch brothers funneled $15 million of secret money into California last election. S.B. 27 makes sure billionaires and other special interests can’t hide behind secretive nonprofits by requiring any group spending $50,000 in California elections to reveal exactly who gave the money.
After activism including 15,000 signatures from CREDO members, the bill passed in the California Senate by a margin of 28-7 and Gov. Brown signed it into law.
