Dan Maffei.</p><p>Maffei, a Democrat, is among 130 co-sponsors of <a href="http://ofby.us/" target="_blank">the Government by the People Act</a>.&nbsp;It looks to amplify small campaign contributions from individuals.</p><p>Donations of up to $150 would be matched by a new federal fund. The match would be six times as much as the original, so a $100 donation would turn into $700. That’s if the candidate agrees to turn away money from political action groups, or PACs.</p> Thu, 13 Feb 2014 20:24:41 +0000 Ryan Delaney 51277 at http://wrvo.org Maffei co-sponsors new public campaign finance push Reform groups urge Cuomo to include public campaign funding in budget http://wrvo.org/post/reform-groups-urge-cuomo-include-public-campaign-funding-budget <p></p> Fri, 17 Jan 2014 12:00:07 +0000 Karen DeWitt 50037 at http://wrvo.org Cuomo trying again for anti-corruption reform http://wrvo.org/post/cuomo-trying-again-anti-corruption-reform <p></p> Mon, 13 Jan 2014 12:28:30 +0000 Karen DeWitt 49838 at http://wrvo.org Cuomo trying again for anti-corruption reform Cuomo says reform is a priority, but not the first priority http://wrvo.org/post/cuomo-says-reform-priority-not-first-priority <p></p> Wed, 18 Dec 2013 12:53:27 +0000 Karen DeWitt 48740 at http://wrvo.org Cuomo says reform is a priority, but not the first priority Calls for public campaign finance system include a Moreland Commission co-chairman http://wrvo.org/post/calls-public-campaign-finance-system-include-moreland-commission-co-chairman <p></p> Wed, 13 Nov 2013 12:23:10 +0000 Karen DeWitt 47080 at http://wrvo.org Is Cuomo's corruption commission going off the rails? http://wrvo.org/post/cuomos-corruption-commission-going-rails <p></p> Wed, 09 Oct 2013 11:50:07 +0000 Karen DeWitt 45378 at http://wrvo.org Moreland hearing focuses on more alleged corruption http://wrvo.org/post/moreland-hearing-focuses-more-alleged-corruption <p></p> Wed, 25 Sep 2013 11:53:20 +0000 Karen DeWitt 44686 at http://wrvo.org Cuomo on campaign finance reform http://wrvo.org/post/cuomo-campaign-finance-reform <p>Governor Andrew Cuomo says he is starting a new effort to push campaign finance reform in New York&rsquo;s elections.<br /><br /> Thu, 12 Jul 2012 12:56:10 +0000 Karen DeWitt 22411 at http://wrvo.org Groups spend $1.5 million to push for campaign finance reform http://wrvo.org/post/groups-spend-15-million-push-campaign-finance-reform <p>With just two months left in the legislative session, advocates of campaign finance reform are pressing Governor Cuomo and the legislature to adopt a New York City style public financing system for the state.
