Honest Ads Act
Bills have been introduced into the House (HR 4077) and Senate (S.1989) which would require transparency and disclosure for Internet advertising. Campaign finance laws already mandate that companies which sell television and radio ads related to campaigns or elections must reveal the identity of the advertiser and the content of the advertisement. The Honest Ads Act would simply add “digital and internet communication” to the forms of media already covered by law.
