Co-sponsor the DISCLOSE Act

Following the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision, fully one-third of all "independent" spending in the 2010 midterms came from secret sources and their corporate front groups.

We're gearing up to re-introduce and pass the DISCLOSE Act -- to finally force corporations to disclose their political spending. But we need a groundswell of support to show our colleagues in Congress that the American people haven't forgotten about the need to pass the DISCLOSE Act.

Please become a citizen co-sponsor today.

Chuck Schumer
U.S. Senator

Patrick Leahy
U.S. Senator

Sheldon Whitehouse
U.S. Senator

The DISCLOSE Act legislation will address seven major points:

1. Enhance Disclaimers
Make CEOs and other leaders take responsibility for their ads.

2. Enhance Disclosures
It is time to follow the money.

3. Prevent Foreign Influence
Foreign countries and entities should not be determining the outcome of our elections.

4. Shareholder/Member Disclosure
We should allow shareholders and members to know where money goes.

5. Prevent Government Contractors from Spending
Taxpayer money should not be spent on political ads.

6. Provide the Lowest Unit Rate for Candidates and Parties
Special interests should not drown out the voices of the people.

7. Tighten Coordination Rules
Corporations should not be able to “sponsor” a candidate.
