The Sunshine Squad, a Progress Michigan project, is a campaign that seeks to shine a light on Michigan’s broken campaign finance, lobbying disclosure and ethics laws. Here you’ll find information on financial contributions to elected officials, committee assignments and voting records for individual legislators in the Michigan House and Senate. In order to have a government that truly represents the people, Michiganders must have quick and easy access to information regarding the actions of their elected officials and who is trying to influence them with money. Sunshine is the ultimate disinfectant to corruption and pay-to-play politics.
