A campaign that is pushing for the public financing of elections in New York is launching a new effort to track support of the issue from state lawmakers.

The Fair Elections Campaign on Friday announced its plan to track legislative sentiment on the issue after Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie last week said there were not yet enough votes in his conference to bring the issue to the floor.

“There are nearly 90 Assembly Members on the record in support of small donor matching. If they don’t deliver comprehensive legislation in the budget, that means a fair number of Assembly Members were elected with these reform credentials, but are backing off now at the height of demand for change,” said Dave Palmer, Fair Elections for New York campaign manager.

“Elected officials are entitled to change their minds from time to time when new information becomes available, but Albany’s money in politics problem has only gotten worse, and the solutions they’ve always supported remain the same.”

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has said a public financing program for elections should be included in a final budget agreement, which is due at the end of the month. Cuomo has also called for lower contribution caps and a ban on corporate donations.

The Assembly has approved public financing legislation in the past, but lawmakers have raised issues with how New York City administers and regulates its own system.

A statewide public financing pilot program was attempted in the 2014 comptroller’s race. Democratic incumbent Tom DiNapoli did not participate in the program, citing what he said was haste in assembling the legislation. His Republican opponent, Bob Antonacci, did attempt to gain public matching funds, but failed to reach the needed donor level.
