Alabama: PAC to PAC transfer bill approved in House committee

Associated Press reports: Ethics and election campaign reform were a priority Wednesday as Alabama House committees began work on proposed legislation for the 2007 regular session.

A bill endorsed by Republicans, Democrats and Gov. Bob Riley to ban the practice of transferring campaign contributions from one political action committee to another was approved unanimously by the House Constitution and Elections Committee.

The panel also approved another election reform measure that requires disclosure of those paying for advertisements about a candidate, including mailouts and calls from a phone bank. -- al.com: NewsFlash - House committees approve PAC to PAC ban, other ethics bills
