Campaign finance; independent expenditures disclosure. Adds federal political action committees, out-of-state political committees, and organizations holding tax-exempt status under 501(c)(3), 501(c)(4), and 501(c)(6) of the United States Internal Revenue Code to the list of entities that must report independent expenditures. While current law requires disclosure of independent expenditures that expressly advocate for the election or defeat of a clearly identified candidate, this bill amends it to include expenditures that (i) have no reasonable interpretation other than an endorsement of the election or defeat of a clearly identified candidate and (ii) clearly identify or depict a candidate while not expressly advocating for his election or defeat. The bill also sets forth the information that must be included in an independent expenditure report. Read the Bill »
