1974 General Resolution

WHEREAS, the interaction of human and technological forces has become increasingly complex and has resulted in awesome power and vulnerability; and

WHEREAS, there is a need greater than at any other time in our history for objective study of issues and competent decision-making by our elected officials; and

WHEREAS, the corrupting influence of financial power in the political process must be curtailed;

BE IT RESOLVED: That the 1974 General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association supports the enactment of legislation that will, by means of an independent enforcement agency, ensure full disclosure of and limit the size of campaign contributions and expenditures, provide incentives for small individual contributions, provide for partial public financing of federal election campaigns, and limit the length of those campaigns.
