Van Hollen to intro bill responding to Citizens United case tomorrow

Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Ma.), the Assistant to the Speaker, will join Reps. Mike Castle (R-Del.), Walter Jones (R-N.C.) and Robert Brady (D-Penn.) on Thursday to introduce a legislative response to the Supreme Court's ruling on the Citizens United case. 

The court decision removed some of the restrictions on campaign spending by corporations and unions, allowing them to spend unlimited funds on election activities to expressly advocate for or against a candidate's election.

The DISCLOSE Act, as it is called, will require certain organizations to disclose their donors, which could include trade groups like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
