Texas Political Committee Treasurer Rule Takes Effect Today
A Texas Ethics Commission rule delineating the state’s document retention policy for treasurers of political committees takes effect today.
Rule §20.18, which was adopted on October 31, 2013, spells out the records needed to be kept for at least two years. The rule also outlines what documentation and actions are needed by a treasurer in order to remain in compliance with the state’s retention law.
Two other rules passed by the commission dealing with the reporting of contribution pledges and political expenditure disclosures take effect on January 1, 2015.
