Tester Introduces the Senate Campaign Disclosure Parity Act

Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) has introduced “legislation to require U.S. Senate campaign committees to file financial disclosure reports online,” according to a press release from his office.

Senate campaign committees are currently the only federal political committees not required to file their financial disclosure reports directly with the Federal Elections Commission—meaning it can take up to a month for Senate campaign disclosures to be made available online.

Tester’s bipartisan Senate Campaign Disclosure Parity Act—which is cosponsored by Senator Thad Cochran, R-Miss.—would close that loophole and make those documents available to the public within a matter of days instead of a matter of weeks.
