U.S. Chamber Opposes Broad, Unconstitutional Donor Disclosure Proposal in Letter to Federal Advisory Committee

October 7, 2021

Earlier this year, the Federal Advisory Committee on Appellate Rules announced that it is considering a proposal that would require amicus briefs filed by trade associations to disclose all donors who contribute 10% or more of their annual revenues. 

To push back on this effort, the U.S. Chamber Litigation Center submitted a letter to the Federal Advisory Committee discussing the impact of the Supreme Court’s recent Americans for Prosperity decision on the disclosure requirements and responding to some of the arguments for why change is needed.
