House passed DISCLOSE Act today

By CREW Staff

We've said before that CREW believes it imperative that the Congress pass legislation as soon as possible to respond to the Supreme Court’s misguided decision in Citizens United. From The HIll:

The House voted 219-206 Thursday to approve a campaign finance bill to tighten disclosure requirements for corporate and union spending on political campaigns.

The bill, a response to the January Supreme Court decision that overturned spending limits for corporations and unions, now heads to the Senate, where it faces a perilous path to passage.
