Letter to the Full House on the DISCLOSE Act
June 24, 2010
The National Education Association, representing 3.2 million educators across the nation, agrees with the spirit of H.R.5175, the Democracy is Strengthened by Casting Light on Spending in Elections Act (DISCLOSE). Voters have a legitimate interest in knowing who funds the deluge of political advertising unleashed each election season.
While earlier versions of this legislation contained an exemption for a specific organization, we understand that considerable changes have been made to alleviate some of our concerns. NEA is not opposed to moving the bill forward for further consideration. We look forward to working with Congressional leaders and members to improve and enact this legislation.
