SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — A bill that would force political nonprofits to reveal the names of campaign donors no longer applies retroactively under an amendment pushed by Republican lawmakers and approved by the Assembly.

The Assembly agreed to the amendment Thursday by unanimous voice vote. The change was made after SB27 fell one vote short of passing the Senate last month.

Because it would take effect this year, it is considered an urgency bill that requires a two-thirds vote in both houses.

Political nonprofits would not have to reveal the source of donations made before July 1, the date the amended bill would become law if signed by the governor.

The bill is a response to $15 million of anonymous contributions funneled through conservative nonprofits ahead of the 2012 general election.
