State Sen. Dean Florez plans to sponsor legislation that would require political nonprofit groups to disclose their donors just as campaign committees and political action committees do now. The Democratic lawmaker was the target earlier this year of ads run by a group calling itself the "Consumer Alliance for a Strong Economy."
“I think Americans have made clear in recent years and in recent elections that they want to know the source of messages they are expected to buy into,” Florez said in a statement released by his office. “I am all in favor of CASE saying what they want about me, as long as they acknowledge who is behind the statements. The public should have the opportunity to weigh what their motives may be.”
