In March 2017, DC councilmembers introduced a bill to establish a small-donor empowerment program in DC. Candidates who agree to reject money from wealthy donors and special interests will receive funds matching what they've raised through small contributions.
"More than 60% of campaign contributions in recent cycles come from either non-District residents or corporations, while only 5% of campaign contributions come from D.C. residents giving $100 or less. D.C.’s donor class is older, whiter, wealthier, and more male than our population as a whole. More than 62% of Council and Mayoral donors are white, compared to 37% of D.C.’s population."
