Money In Politics: How Much Should Be Disclosed? (June 25, 2015)

Americans have a rich tradition of financially supporting charitable organizations and political causes. In recent years, lawmakers and regulators have proposed requiring these organizations and causes to disclose the identity of their donors. 

The Mackinac Center’s Arthur N. Rupe Foundation Debate on Money in Politics: How Much Should Be Disclosed?, will address the question of whether individuals who donate to nonprofit organizations or political issues should be able to maintain their privacy. 

The debate will feature Bradley A. Smith, a former commissioner on the Federal Election Commission and chairman of the Center for Competitive Politics, and Rich Robinson, executive director of the Michigan Campaign Finance Network.

This event is free. Hors d'oeuvres and light refreshments are included with reservations.
