Snowe and Collins urged to support Disclose Act

“Your vote on the Disclose Act will be a vote on the most important government integrity reform measure to be considered thus far by the Senate in this Congress,” the letter states. “This critical ‘transparency’ legislation deserves your support. Any effort to filibuster the Disclose Act deserves your opposition.”

Tuesday’s letter, sent by organizations including the League of Women Voters, the Campaign Legal Center, and Democracy 21, suggests Snowe and Collins air their grievances with the bill before Reid sends it to the floor. 

“If you have concerns about any specific provision in the Disclose Act, we strongly urge you to resolve those issue through discussions with the sponsors of the legislation and not by voting to kill the legislation,” the letter states.

The House passed the legislation 219-206 before adjourning for the July 4 recess. Its narrow victory has some wondering if it has enough momentum to get through the Senate.
