Legislature votes to ban PAC to PAC transfers

The Legislature passed a bill on Wednesday that would stop the longtime practice of transferring campaign contributions between political action committees, which essentially hides the original source of the contribution.
Both chambers unanimously passed a version on Wednesday after members met to work out differences. The bill now goes to Gov. Bob Riley for his signature.
Political observers have argued for years that candidates have used PACs to hide who they were receiving campaign funding from.
"It's been a long time coming," said Sen. Arthur Orr, R-Decatur.
