BOSTON – Senator Cindy F. Friedman (D-Arlington) recently voted along with her colleagues to pass legislation that increases transparency and accountability in the Commonwealth’s elections by reforming fiscal reporting requirements. The bill, An Act relative to campaign finance, was later signed into law by Governor Baker on November 26, 2019.
“Ensuring transparency and accountability are a critical component of good government,” said Senator Friedman. “I’m pleased that we took a step forward to reform our campaign finance reporting system so that legislators are held to the same standard as statewide, county and municipal candidates who choose to run for office. Voters should be able to easily access accurate and timely information regarding campaign donations and expenditures, and this law will make that possible.”
