As the chair of The Fair and Political Practices Committee, Jodi Remke has made ethical political donations a priority.

This includes ensuring the legality of all campaign finance activity for lobbying and expenditures, not to mention the regulation of “dark money.”

Remke is now leading the FPPC in a revamp of the Political Reform Act, which was designed to regulate campaign finance. Since its inception in 1974, the Act has undergone many changes making it difficult to interpret. This has created an advantage to those who want to find loopholes in where election money goes.

Larry Mantle speaks to Remke today on the revision of the Act, what steps are taken ahead of elections to enforce regulations and new technology tools for transparency.
