Lawmaker suggests raising voluntary check-off for campaign funding
The head of the state Assembly's Elections Committee says Wisconsin might want to raise its voluntary income tax check-off for public campaign financing.
Jeff Smith, D-Eau Claire, recently chaired a series of public hearings on how to clean up Wisconsin's elections.
And he said raising the check-off is one of the possible ideas. It's been at $1 for years - and Smith calls it totally inadequate.
