Senate DISCLOSE Act of 2012 Committee Hearing Scheduled
A committee hearing is scheduled this week in the Senate to examine its version of the DISCLOSE Act of 2012.
Introduced last week, Senate Bill 2219, also entitled “Democracy Is Strengthened by Casting Light On Spending in Elections Act of 2012”, amends the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971 to provide for additional disclosure requirements for corporations, labor organizations, Super PACs, and other entities.
A House version of the bill, H.R. 4010, introduced in February, revives a previously failed effort in 2010 to pass the legislation.
The Senate Bill 2219 hearing with the Senate Committee on Rules and Administration is scheduled for Thursday March 29 at 10 a.m.
