FEC Seeks Comments on National Party Committee Segregated Accounts
The Federal Election Commission (FEC) is seeking public comments on proposals for rules requiring national party committees to report receipts and disbursements for their segregated accounts.
These comments must be submitted on or before October 28, 2019.
A petition filed by the Campaign Legal Center and the Center for Responsive Politics made a request to the FEC.
The request stated the national party committees report their receipts to and disbursements from the accounts in “inconsistent and insufficient ways,” making the public unable to clearly determine the amounts of money received and disbursed from the segregated accounts.
The notice of availability for the submission of public comments was issued in the August 28 Federal Register.
