Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) --...House
Democratic leaders were having problems moving the bill forward until they reached a compromise with the NRA, which had opposed
the measure, to exempt it from the disclosure requirements that it worried would force it to make its membership lists public.
The exemption doesn't mention the NRA specifically but allows
501(c)4 groups with more than one million members and affiliates in all 50 states and meeting other criteria to opt out of
some of the requirements of the bill.
The changes aren't enough for National Right to Life.
"NRLC is strongly opposed to the bill, viewing it as a blatant
political attack on the constitutional rights of the organization and of its members and donors," it said. "President Obama
and congressional Democratic leaders are pushing hard for quick enactment of a bill that would place extensive new legal restrictions
on the ability of corporations - including incorporated nonprofit citizen groups such as NRLC -- to communicate with the public
about the actions of federal lawmakers."
