Unless Congress takes action, the Presidential Election Campaign Fund is expected to experience a shortfall of approximately $125 million for financing the 1996 campaign. This book discusses how structural flaws in the public funding legislation and a decline in participation in the checkoff program have provoked the immediate financial crisis, one that could result in the return of "big" money and a greater emphasis on fundraising in campaign financing. The problem has been compounded by a lack of public knowledge of campaign financing and a general attitude of disillusionment and frustration among voters.
