Texas 30-day Pre-Election Reports Due March 5 Not Required
The Texas Ethics Commission announced there is no requirement to file the 30-day pre-election report due March 5th.
Normally, committees such as general and specific-purpose political committees that support or oppose a candidate or measure must file reports 30 days before an election in which the committee is involved, covering the first day after the period covered by the last report through 40 days before the election.
The Ethics Commission lifted the requirement because there is no ballot for the April 3rd election. The state’s primary election dates will likely be changed once redistricting in Texas has been finalized.
