Governor Bullock Hails SCOTUS Decision to Uphold 2015 Montana DISCLOSE Act

Tuesday, February 19, 2019/Categories: Governor's Office/Tags:

Governor Steve Bullock today hailed the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision not to review the 2015 Montana DISCLOSE Act. The Supreme Court’s decision upholds a lower federal court ruling that held Montana’s disclosure requirements constitutional.  

"Montana's 2015 DISCLOSE Act is here to stay. For over 100 years we have led the way in clean government and transparent elections, despite attempts by out-of-state interests to time and time again overturn the will of the Montana people. This is another victory Montanans can claim over the big money that wants to make our decisions for us."

Governor Bullock worked with a bipartisan group of lawmakers to pass the DISCLOSE Act in 2015. The DISCLOSE Act set a national standard for campaign finance by looking past an organization’s tax status to require the disclosure of funds spent influencing elections and marks one of the most transparent campaign finance laws in the nation.
