(The Center Square) – State Sen. Teresa Fedor, D-Toledo, has introduced legislation to require limited liability companies (LLCs) and 501(c)(4) nonprofit corporations to disclose funding sources for contributions made to political campaigns.
Senate Bill 349, the Ohio Anti-Corruption Act, is a companion to a similar bill introduced in the statehouse. The measure is the latest following the arrest of former House Speaker Larry Householder, R-Glenford.
“The public deserves to know where money spent to elect public officials comes from,” Fedor said in a news release. “This legislation will shed a light on dark money and ensure full transparency. We need accountability on every penny spent.”
