The Illinois Campaign Finance Project

Project goals were to create a database of campaign finance in Illinois for 1990-1994; increase public awareness of campaign finance reform; make analysis of campaign finance more accessible; increase the interest of the new media in dealing with campaign finance issues and campaign finance documents; and increase the interest of Illinois legislators, constitutional officers and their staffs in making campaign finance issues a topic of serious discussion in the public debate.
