SJ Res. 64 Suppressing Free Speech through Donor Disclosure Rules (Roll Call 260)
This Democrat-led resolution invokes the Congressional Review Act to limit free political speech by requiring certain tax-exempt organizations to collect and make available to the Internal Revenue Service the names and addresses of their contributors. Specifically, the resolution nullifies the Department of Treasury rule that protects donor identity ("Returns by Exempt Organizations and Returns by Certain Non-Exempt Organizations"). ACU opposes efforts to chill free political speech through donor intimidation and opposed this resolution. The Senate passed the resolution on December 12, 2018 by a vote of 50-49.
