We have great news from Washington! Representatives Marty Meehan (D-MA), Christopher Shays (R-CT) and David Price (D-NC) introduced legislation last week to fix the presidential public funding system. Senator Russell Feingold (D-WI) has also introduced companion legislation in the Senate to fix the system.

This legislation will make public funding a viable option for any presidential hopeful. The Just $6 campaign has announced their support of the legislation. Please show your support for the legislation now.

The public funding levels included in this bill are sufficient for a publicly funded candidate to get his or her message out to the voters, and sufficient for a publicly funded candidate to run a competitive race against any candidate who opts to use unlimited private money.

If passed, the legislation would take effect on January 1, 2009 and be effective for presidential elections following the 2008 election. Read more about the new legislation.

Thank you for your continued support.
