'Clean Money' Bill and Election Finance Reform

By Danila Oder, Letter to the Editor

I support public financing of state elections, but we need to roll back term limits at the same time. Clean money promises to increase the number of inexperienced legislators.

Current legislators already barely have time to learn their jobs before they have to prepare to run for another office. Inexperienced legislators will need even more time to become effective.

If term limits remain in place, any decrease in legislative effectiveness due to these new officeholders will be blamed on clean money rather than on term limits.
