On Monday, the DISCLOSE Act will come to the floor of the U.S. Senate. We’ve been working hard to ensure that it overcomes the procedural hurdle known as cloture, and comes to the Senate floor for a full debate.
In addition to the radio ads, we recently aired in Maine and Tennessee on the importance of disclosure in general, our state and local Leagues across the country have also been working hard to ensure their Senators know we want them to stop secret spending and to give the voters the information they need to make informed decisions. Below are just some of the Letters to the Editors and Op Eds that our state and local Leagues have succeeded in getting published on the importance of disclosure.
