CLC Letter in Opposition to Mississippi HB 1205


CLC submitted the attached letter to Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant, asking him to veto anti-transparency legislation passed by the state legislature. The bill, HB 1205, would broadly prohibit state and local government agencies in Mississippi from requiring 501(c) organizations to disclose any information about their donors and supporters.The Mississippi bill closely resembles legislation that was vetoed by Michigan's governor in December 2018.
