👎🏻 H.R.1063 - To amend title 44, United States Code, to require information on contributors to Presidential library fundraising organizations, and for other purposes.👎🏻
I’d be in opposition to this Democratic Rep Cummings. House bill H.R. 1063 which would require organizations that fundraise for presidential libraries to report donor information and donation amounts on a quarterly basis. The data would then be displayed — in a free, searchable, sortable, and downloadable format — on the National Archives website within 30 days of receiving the fundraising organization’s report.
If I desire to donate $250 to the Reagan or any other Presidential Library, it’s none any Political Representative’s business as I’m a Private Citizen and I can donate to whom ever I want.
If the bill is passed, would we be seeing a listing of ALL political private donations to Representative Elijah Cummings Or Speaker Pelosi’s? I really doubt it.
Many of the people making a donation of $200 or more aren’t doing it to buy influence — they want to preserve history. It seems unfair to treat a $200 donation the same as a $200,000 donation.
