Philadelphia Board of Ethics Approves Changes to Campaign Finance Regulation
The Philadelphia Board of Ethics passed changes to Regulation No. 1, the Board’s campaign finance rules.
Among the changes, the Board added a definition for a former candidate, clarified electronic filing requirements, and now requires political committees to file a report with the Board any time it files a statement with city commissioners or the Secretary of State disclosing debt incurred to influence a covered election.
Other clerical changes and updates to the examples provided were also made. These changes are now in effect.
