One thing the Arizona Citizens Clean Elections Commission and the Goldwater Institute can agree on: Any extra money the commission returns to the state’s ailing general fund is a good thing.

The commission is budgeted to return $20 million to the state, Todd Lang, its executive director, said in mid-November.

“Obviously, we’re trying to be as aggressive as possible, given the state’s financial situation,” he said. “And that $20 million wouldn’t be there if Clean Elections wasn’t the law.”

When asked in October about the potential for any leftover money to be given to the state, Nick Dranias, director of the Center for the Constitutional Government at the Goldwater Institute, said, “Even though that’s not going to fix any budget problems by itself, every little bit helps.”
