Alabama: PAC to PAC transfer bill passes senate

Alabama Senate approves bill to regulate PAC donations | TimesDaily.com | Times Daily | Florence, AL
AP reports: The Democrat-controlled Alabama Senate split largely along party lines Tuesday to approve a bill that would stop some financial transfers used to hide the source of campaign contributions while allowing others.

Democrats said the bill would end the movement of money from one political action committee to another to disguise the original source of 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 after killing similar bills the six prior years. --
