Good Governance

Good Governance

Over the years we have been dismayed to see bad environmental laws enacted as well as lackluster enforcement of the existing good laws on the books. All too often, this is due to the influence of special interest money in the political system and a lack of transparency in our government.  To create good environmental policies, our political process must be structured to promote the public interest.  Sierra Club supports cleaning up money in politics through campaign finance reform measures such as publicly-funded elections and increased disclosure.  We also support more transparency in the legislature and other areas of government, to ensure that the public can keep an eye on the process.
