Montana’s ‘Disclose Act’ Remains Intact After Ninth Circuit Opinion

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals released an opinion this week in a longstanding debate over Montana Political Practices law. Montana Attorney General’s office spokesman Eric Sell explains.

“The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals issued an opinion yesterday [May 22] upholding Montana’s campaign disclosure laws, these were laws passed by the 2015 legislative session called ‘the Disclose Act'” Sell said. “This tightened up Montana’s regulations requiring anyone who is engaging in political activity during elections to disclose where their finances come from.”
