Federal appeals court rules that CA charities have to disclose names of "significant donors"-- ie, those who give more than $5000 in calendar year.
"California may require charities that raise money in the state to disclose the names of major contributors, a federal appeals court decided Friday. The decision stemmed from a lawsuit by the Center for Competitive Politics, a group that opposes campaign finance and reporting regulations. Another charitable group backed by conservative donors David and Charles Koch filed a similar suit in federal court in December." -- Maura Dolan, the Los Angeles Times
