Griswold: Coloradans deserve to know who is funding all those negative campaign ads

The Clean Campaign Act of 2019 makes it so that corporations and special interests will follow the same type of disclosure rules that candidates already do. It exposes the hard-to-trace high-dollar donations by requiring organizations that give money to Colorado SuperPACs to disclose their funding sources. Special interests will no longer be able to hide their money by transferring it through various shell organizations. The bill prevents all foreign nationals, foreign corporations, and foreign countries from spending money on any type of political communication or controlling any type of campaign finance committee in this state. Additionally, it will ensure that corporations that spend money in support of, or against, ballot initiatives disclose that they paid for the communication.
