“House Members Urge Obama to Veto Bill if Campaign Finance Riders Not Removed”

Democracy 21 Press Release:

Today, 47 members of the House of Representatives signed and sent a letter to President Obama urging the President to block campaign finance riders that have been placed in the House Financial Services Appropriations bill.

The letter organized by Representative Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) states that the bill would prevent the Executive Branch from issuing rules to require campaign finance disclosure by government contractors and non-profit “social welfare” organizations, as well as shareholder disclosure by corporations.

The letter from House members urges the president to veto this legislation if the riders are not removed from the bill.
