WASHINGTON, DC – House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today after Senate Republicans blocked consideration of the DISCLOSE Act:


“I’m disappointed that Republicans once again put corporate interests ahead of the American people’s interest, and blocked consideration of the DISCLOSE Act.  This bill would increase transparency and accountability in campaigns, which is exactly what Republicans said they supported for years.  Now, when given the chance to take action, Republicans focused on their political interest instead.”
