Building a Common Data Standard for Campaign Finance Disclosure

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The technology exists for real time donor disclosure, so what’s the deal with the most basic of automation when handling this data? Join a panel of top disclosure and transparency advocates as they discuss the status of implementing common data standards and the friction that belies making this information accessible to the public.
