In collaboration with the IRRC Institute, Si2 submitted a statement for the record to the U.S. Senate Committee on Rules and Administration, regarding the committee’s consideration of the DISCLOSE Act of 2012. The statement begins:
In the wake of the landmark Citizens United Supreme Court decision, numerous organizations are providing input on the highly contentious policy debate regarding the disclosure of political expenditures. As the Committee examines each side of the debate and potential legislation, we believe an important element of the decision making process is a careful examination of neutral, nonpartisan data on what companies actually are doing with regard to disclosure of political expenditures. The full statement is attached here: FINAL Statement to S Rules March 2012
Attached to the statement is the November 2011 Si2/IRRC study, Corporate Governance of Political Expenditures – 2011 Benchmark for SP500.
