Transparency USA has made some New Year's resolutions!
  • The "Donors" category has been renamed "Contributors" to clarify that not all contributions are monetary donations.
  • The "PACs" category has been renamed to "Committees," because the term "Political Action Committee" is not used in every state.
  • Soon, we will be rolling out changes to better differentiate between different types of transactions, whether monetary, non-monetary (in-kind), or something else. These different transaction types will also be handled more consistently among states.
