CITIPAC protects local democracy. For years cities worked to increase constitutional protections for local revenues. With the passage of Proposition 1A they have achieved that goal. But the Legislature frequently generates plans – legislation or ballot measures – that allow the state to assume more and more influence over all levels of government, threatening local services and local decision-making. A well-funded PAC enables the League to respond to these challenges.
