DISCLOSE Act Moves on to Senate

Ian Scott on Thursday, July 1, 2010 at 4:31:07 pm

Having cleared the House by a 219-206 margin, the DISCLOSE Act will now move to the Senate where supporters expect some changes.  House sponsor Rep. Van Hollen (D-MD) is was quoted in The Hill saying:

"They (The Senate) may have to make changes without harming the core of the bill," he said Wednesday evening. "In other words, no substantial changes."

The bill is not expected to come up for discussion until after debate closes on financial reform regulation.  Any changes to the bill would force a re-vote in the House that would slow down passage.
