Why do we need the Amendment?

A:
  • We have a fundamental right to know who is spending money to influence our elections. This measure brings transparency to all major political spending so North Dakotans know who is funding campaigns. We must protect the integrity of our elections from the corrupting influence of secret money
  • This measure is about making government in North Dakota work for you and your family, not just the well-connected and powerful.
  • North Dakota has no impartial source of information, expertise, advice, or investigation on ethical behavior in state government.  All but eight other states have an ethics commission. It's just common sense to hold politicians accountable and increase transparency.
