Leadership PACs’ Personal Use Petition Comment Period Ends November 16
The public has until November 16 to comment on a petition to expand federal regulations concerning the personal use of campaign funds taken from leadership PACs.
A petition for rulemaking received by the Federal Election Commission (FEC) in July seeks to revise and amend 11 CFR §113.1(g), which regulates the personal use of campaign funds. The petitioners want the regulation to also apply to leadership PAC funds.
Public comments must be submitted in writing to the FEC on or before November 16, 2018, to be considered during the formulation of the proposed rule. Comments may be submitted electronically at http://sers.fec.gov/fosers/rulemaking.htm?pid=2933211.
The Commission does not consider a petition’s merits until after the comment period closes. If the FEC decides a petition has merit, it then begins a rulemaking proceeding.
