President Obama and many members of Congress sharply criticized the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. Senator Charles Schumer and Rep. Chris Van Hollen have introduced a bill, the DISCLOSE Act, to circumvent Citizens United. DISCLOSE proposes extensive mandated disclosure of spending by businesses, labor unions, and nonprofit groups. It also prohibits speech by government contractors, TARP recipients, and U.S. companies with as little as 20 percent foreign ownership. Please join us for an expert discussion of the content and implications of DISCLOSE.
