ACLU-PA Position: Supports
HB 815 would require that all candidates for office and political action committees (PACs) in Pennsylvania utilize the Department of State’s online filing system to electronically file campaign finance reports.
Paper filing of campaign finance reports is outdated, costly, and inefficient. Many candidates and political action committees already file their reports electronically. Requiring electronic filing would not only improve government transparency and accountability, it would save the commonwealth money by reducing bureaucratic inefficiencies.
