“Disclose Act” Passes Through US House

The “Disclose Act” narrowly passed 219 to 206 Thursday with most Democrats and only two Republicans supporting it.  36 Democrats voted “no.”  The bill tightens the disclosure requirements for corporate and union spending on political campaigns.  Supporters say that will keep them from having undue and anonymous influence.
