Washington, D.C. -- Today, U.S. Representative John D. Dingell (D-MI15), joined by co-sponsors, John Conyers, Jr. (D-MI14), Carolyn Maloney (D-NY14), Robert Andrews (D-NJ01), Diana DeGette (D-CO01), Jim McGovern (D-MA03), Robert Brady (D-PA01), Chris Van Hollen (D-MD08), Keith Ellison (D-MN05), Donna F. Edwards (D-MD04), and Barney Frank (D-MA04) introduced strong legislation to make workable reforms to election financing. The "Restoring Confidence in Our Democracy Act" prohibits corporations and unions from making independent expenditures and electioneering communications, and subjects Super Political Action Committees (PAC) to the same restrictions as regular PACs, such as a $5,000 contribution limit.
