House Sets Aside Campaign Finance Bill for the Week

Reps. Raúl Grijalva (D-Ariz.) and Lynn Woolsey (D-Calif.), the co-chairs of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, wrote to Pelosi requesting that the bill include a measure requiring companies to get shareholder approval for any political expenditures — or at least allow a stand-alone vote on that proposal.“We made a lot of progress this week, despite opposition by hundreds of special interests groups who are doing what they do best — looking out for themselves,” said Doug Thornell, spokesman for Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), who is taking the lead in crafting the bill. “While we aren’t there yet, we will be soon. Reforming the way Washington works and taking on corporate greed is never easy.”
