Ala. Senate Approves Bill To Regulate PAC Donations
(2008-02-26)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - The Alabama Senate has approved a bill that would stop some financial transfers used to hide the source of campaign contributions, but it would allow others.

Democrats said the bill would end the movement of money from one political action committee to another to disguise the original source of a campaign contributions. Republicans said the bill opens up new methods for hiding campaign donations because it exempts political parties and legislative caucuses from the definition of a PAC.

The Senate voted 20-14 for the rewritten PAC bill. The bill now goes back to the House, which passed a tougher version earlier this month.
