California Governor Signs “Dark Money” Bill
Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a bill to close “dark money” loopholes used to avoid disclosure of campaign contributors.
Senate Bill 27 requires large donations from nonprofits and other multipurpose organizations to be disclosed. The top 10 contributors to state committees will now be posted online by the Fair Political Practices Commission.
The bill becomes effective immediately, but with a delayed operative date of July 1, 2014.
