The Supreme Court recently ruled that aggregate contribution limits to political candidates are unconstitutional. Although we are disappointed by this outcome, we will continue to push for real-time transparency of hard money contributions.

Sunshine Week Editorials on S. 482

by

Happy Sunshine Week everyone! I'm happy to share some editorials from around the country in support of Sunlight's efforts to get the Senate to electronically file their campaign finance reports by passing S. 482.

The Knoxville News Sentinel writes in support of S. 482 stating, "although a former senator from Tennessee really didn't invent the Internet, we urge members of the U.S. Senate to make better use of it anyway."

The Salt Lake City Tribune pens an article about the Pass 482 campaign including a look at Sen. Orrin Hatch's position. "Hatch, too, says there is merit to the bill and that it enjoys widespread support." Sen. Hatch says he supports the bill but is yet to sign on as a co-sponsor. You can call his office here to ask him to sign on.

The Birmingham News and The Patriot Ledger both published op-eds by Sunlight's Ellen Miller calling for the Senate to pass S. 482.

The effort to Pass 482 is only just underway. You can still help out by calling your senators and asking them to support the bill at our Pass 482 site.
