Hoyer Against WH Proposal To Require Federal Contractors To Disclose Contributions

House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) said Tuesday he does not back a White House proposal to require federal contractors to disclose their political contributions.

"It's not a requirement now I don't think it ought to be a requirement. So I'm not in agreement with the administration on that issue," said Hoyer during a news conference. Hoyer represents Maryland's 5th District, which is suburban D.C., an area with many federal contractors.

The White House is proposing a plan to require federal contractors to more fully report their political spending -- and it has angered business leaders and Senate Republicans.

"Certainly, I am in agreement with the Democratic Whip," said House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), in response to Hoyer.
