New Regs from NYC Campaign Finance Board Effective 1/20/15
The New York City Campaign Finance Board’s newly approved rules permitting candidates enrolled in the public matching funds program to receive contributions via text message took effect January 20, 2015.
The rules permit public funds to match the text message contribution once those contributions are paid via the contributor’s phone bill.
The rules further establish record keeping requirements for text message contributions and a process to certify the identity of the contributor.
