The president released his budget request for fiscal year 2013 this month, though it did not reflect a significant focus on campaign finance reform or regulation of lobbying activity. The budget proposes requiring electronic filing for Senate campaign committees and would eliminate the congressionally-approved ban on disclosure of political contributions by prospective government contractors. Both proposals would require congressional approval. However, the budget proposal did not address enhanced restrictions on lobbyists or the bundling restrictions highlighted in the State of the Union. The request did include $11.5 million in funding for the Election Assistance Commission (EAC), despite recent congressional efforts to shutter the agency.
