Relating to policies and programs that permit the use of public money to finance political campaigns.
No fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
SB 974 would prohibit a political subdivision from adopting or implementing a policy or program that permits the use of public money or revenue to finance a political campaign. This includes direct or indirect use of public money or revenue through a voucher or similar program that provides a person with the public money or revenue to finance a political campaign.
Texas Action supports SB 974 because it promotes limited government. This bill would prevent abuse of taxpayer funds through the use of vouchers that could be used to fund candidates in local elections.
