In response to the FEC announcement, Rep. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., issued a statement calling for passage of the DISCLOSE Act, which would require political organizations to disclose the names of donors giving $10,000 or more.
"The FEC's announcement to follow the Court's ruling is a welcome and necessary step forward," Van Hollen said. "This lawsuit is one step forward in our fight to restore the integrity of our electoral process, and will shine an important light on some of the shadowy money that has flooded our elections. But there is more to be done."
