With just a few days to go in the legislative session, House Republicans proved to the public one
last more time their disinterest in increasing transparency and accountability in Minnesota elections.
The DISCLOSE Act would increase disclosure for political spending, including where donations to groups that influence elections are coming from. But yesterday, House Republicans voted to table the proposal.
Last session, Republicans passed a budget bill that allowed unlimited contributions from PACs and lobbyists and blocked similar efforts to shed light on dark money in our elections.
Their blocking the DISCLOSE Act is just another example of Republicans putting their corporate backers ahead of Minnesotans.
