Last night, the House of Representatives passed a campaign finance reform bill. NPR's Peter Overby reports that the measure would close a loophole that allowed some tax-exempt groups to raise and spend unlimited amounts of money without disclosure. The bill, which passed by a wide margin, could become law before the November elections.
