Another hidden provision in the omnibus budget bill

Political Wire reports: "Without floor debate or a single hearing, Congress changed election laws last week to allow members to transfer campaign funds raised for a federal race to a run for state or local office," Roll Call reports.

"A four-paragraph provision taking up less than half a page in the 3,300-page omnibus appropriations measure struck a portion of the landmark campaign laws adopted in 2002 and once again freed Members to apply dollars raised for federal elections toward bids for governor, mayor or other offices." -- Political Wire: Congress Frees Funds
