A campaign disclosure bill passed by the Montana Legislature and signed into law last year is putting new pressure on independent political committees.

  The Disclose Act requires all of the 122 organizations registered in Montana as independent political committees to report all their contributors and expenses. And they must do it electronically.

Commissioner of Political Practices Jonathan Motl says this new act is vital because candidates no long have to report these independent expenditures, which are by definition ,independent of the candidate.
