Press Conference for Campaign Finance Reform

Local civic groups are joining forces to call for campaign finance reform.

Those groups are holding a press conference at noon today, urging Governor Paterson, Senate Majority Leader Joe Bruno, and other state leaders to ban the personal use of campaign contributions.

Right now, state law allows lawmakers to use things like concert tickets, dinners, luxury cars, and other gifts that have nothing to do with the lawmaker's business matters or campaign activities.
