Legislation requiring organizations that raise money for presidential libraries to disclose who is funneling donations to their efforts is set to be considered by a Senate panel, despite unresolved objections from one committee member.
Committee Chairman Joseph I. Lieberman, I-Conn., originally planned to mark up the bill June 13 but yanked the measure after it drew objections from committee member Ted Stevens, R-Alaska.
Stevens argued that the legislation would unfairly force President Bush to disclose donors for his presidential library while he's still in the midst of raising funds. Stevens is currently under investigation by both the FBI and the IRS for his relationship with an oil field engineering firm.
