Tucson's public campaign financing system, enacted in 1985, is a major success and can serve as a model for small- and medium-sized cites throughout the United States. Tucson's law is the oldest local government public financing law currently administered in the nation and demonstrates that, given sufficient time, public financing can become an integral part of a jurisdiction's political culture. This report explores the successes of Tucson's law and recommends reforms to enhance its effectiveness.
