“House Bill Would Ax Election Panel, Bar Limits on Money in Politics”

Bloomberg BNA:

Republicans in Congress are supporting provisions in a new House spending bill that would eliminate the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC), restrict the Internal Revenue Service from limiting political activities of tax-exempt organizations and churches, and bar the Securities and Exchange Commission from requiring disclosure of corporate political spending.
Elimination of the EAC, a small agency headed by a bipartisan group of commissioners advising state and local election officials, has long been advocated by some Republican lawmakers. The latest push, however, comes shortly after the Trump administration created a new advisory commission focused on alleged voter fraud. The new panel, which is set to hold its first meeting July 19, is dominated by Republicans and seen by critics as pushing a partisan agenda.
