Public Campaign's Nick Nyhart and Citizen Action NY's Karen Scharff Talk Fair Elections on The Capitol Pressroom

It's been a busy week for the campaign to bring Fair Elections to New York. Public Campaign President Nick Nyhart, along with Citizen Action New York's Executive Director Karen Scharff appeared on the radio yesterday to talk about the major campaign to bring Fair Elections to state legislative races. You can listen to their appearance here.

And here's more coverage of the campaign from Your News Now in Syracuse.

From the story: "As state officials consider an overhaul campaign finance laws and possibly restrict notoriously high contribution limits, Speaker Sheldon Silver says he may get behind a bill that would public financing the next state comptroller's race in 2014 as an experimental program. He's backing the bill alongside a broader measure to publicly finance political campaigns. 'We're still looking for a comprehensive bill--not comptroller only--just like the Assembly has passed in previous sessions.'"
