AB 201 Mandates Political Ad Text Messages ‘Paid For By’ Disclosure In California

Assembly Bill 201, which will have all political text messages to disclose who the committee and their top contributors are in the the text, was passed by the state Senate Wednesday 34-1.

Authored by Assemblymembers Sabrina Cervantes (D-Corona) and Kevin Mullin (D-South San Francisco), the bill includes language designed to have fewer messages go out. Political text message ads in the future will need to include the words “Paid for by” or “With”, along with the name of the committee who paid for the text, or a link to their web page.
