Senate Democrats are planning a vote on the “Democracy is Strengthened by Casting Light on Spending in Elections Act” (S. 3628) – the “Disclose Act”, for short — THIS AFTERNOON.
This legislation has already passed the House, so it’s urgent you contact your Senators today.
The bill is a direct assault on participation in the political process.
It will force groups like the Republican Liberty Caucus to report our members to the Federal Elections Commission (FEC).
As a grassroots, all-volunteer organization, we don’t have the staff to prepare such reports.
By requiring us to spend time on reporting to the FEC, they are holding us hostage to federal regulations and reporting requirements. The result: The RLC will spend LESS time on our mission and more time complying with federal regulations that stifle free speech.
“The Disclose Act” will create a list of all people who donate to all organizations in support of political campaigns, to be posted on the Federal Elections Commission website.
This attack on free speech will particularly hit the groups in the liberty movement hard. They and everyone else will have unfettered access to our donors.
Please contact your Senator today and ask them to VOTE NO on S. 3628.
