New Public Funding Bill Introduced in Congress

On September 14, Congressman John Sarbanes (D-Md.) introduced HR 6426, which provides public funding for candidates for Congress. Candidates for U.S. House would qualify by raising contributions privately from at least 2,000 individuals, at least half of whom must live in the district. The total would need to be at least $50,000 in private contributions. Here is the text of the bill.
