The Mississippi House Elections Committee Tuesday approved a bill that would require more public disclosure about who's paying for Mississippi campaigns.
It's similar to a bill vetoed by Gov. Haley Barbour at the end of the 2004 legislative session, but it has a provision that Barbour and Republican senators removed from last year's bill before it went to the governor, a $5,000 limit on what one political action committee, or PAC, can give to another.
Some lawmakers say after one PAC passes money to another, it's difficult to know who originally gave the cash.
A separate campaign finance bill has been filed in the Senate this session.
