“To be a leader in financial disclosure for political candidates, Illinois should require the following information to be disclosed in each Statement of Economic Interest:

    • Names of businesses and investments with financial ties to the candidate
    • The amount of income a candidate received from reported entities
    • A list of the candidate’s professional clients, as allowed by law

None of these reforms are unprecedented. At the federal level, and in ten states, including California and New York, candidates are already required to provide a list of assets, sources of income, and the amount received from each source. Many more states have versions of these requirements, where specifics on sources of income, but not value, are disclosed.”
