New York City Campaign Finance Board Approves Final Rules
On November 17, 2016, The New York City Campaign Finance Board approved rule changes from September.
The purpose of the new rules is to reduce coordination between campaigns and independent expenditure groups by adding two new factors to determine coordination between the two groups. Another rule codifies an advisory opinion stating once an individual has been compensated for a service, he or she may no longer be considered a volunteer for the previously compensated service.
The entire notice of the final rules can be found here. The final rules will be published in The City Record on November 25, 2016, and will be effective on December 27, 2016.
