Nonprofit organizations are fighting a new federal requirement that will force them to check their employees and expenditures against several terrorist watch lists - a move that could affect hundreds of thousands of people nationwide including in Tennessee.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) together with 12 national nonprofit organizations filed a lawsuit Wednesday challenging the U.S. Office of Personnel Management's Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) requirement that charities receiving money from the CFC check all their employees and contractors against government watch lists."
