WASHINGTON, DC – House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer released the following statement today in response to a letter from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Senator Chuck Schumer, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Rules and Administration, on the DISCLOSE Act:
 
“Today’s letter from the Senate Leadership, affirming their intent to continue to work on the DISCLOSE Act, is a positive step for this legislation that will ensure transparency and accountability in campaigns.  Republicans argued for years about the importance of transparency, so they should join with us to pass legislation that furthers that goal.  I know that Rep. Van Hollen is working hard so that we could consider the DISCLOSE Act on the House Floor this week.”
