End Citizens United President Tiffany Muller released the following statement on news that Alaska Governor Bill Walker signed HB44, a major anti-corruption measure, into law. End Citizens United and its members were a key partner in the fight to support the initiative that inspired the bill:
“The signing of HB44 into law is a transformative victory for Alaska. The incredible grassroots energy and enthusiasm that fueled the Alaskans For Integrity initiative and the resulting passage of this law is a testament to the hunger for reform throughout the state. It’s a significant step toward rooting out corruption and curbing the undue influence of special interests. End Citizens United applauds the nearly 50,000 Alaskans who submitted signatures for the initiative and helped return the power in government back to where it rightfully belongs — with them,” said ECU President Tiffany Muller.
