Description

Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives plan to introduce legislation that would require presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney to release 10 years of tax returns, along with other personal financial information. The legislation, which will be introduced by Rep. Sander Levin (D-Mich.), is specifically aimed at presidential candidates with complex and secretive financial holdings -- much like the former governor of Massachusetts. It would require candidates to disclose information "not currently included on disclosures and not easily discernible from tax returns," and would help "provide a fuller picture of a candidate's financial holdings and interests," according to a press release Wednesday from the House Ways and Means Committee.
