NGO transparency bill moves towards final vote

Controversial legislation requiring increased transparency for NGOs that receive most of their funding from foreign governments received approval from the Knesset Constitution, Law and Justice Committee Monday, and is likely to go to a vote next week.

The bill, a combination of a Justice Ministry proposal and initiatives by MKs Bezalel Smotrich (Bayit Yehudi) and Robert Ilatov (Yisrael Beytenu), states that any non-profit organization that receives more than half of its funding from a foreign political entity must write as much on any publication or letter to elected officials or civil servants.
