Washington PDC Considers Amending Campaign Finance Regulations
The Public Disclosure Commission is considering whether to adopt new regulations increasing monetary penalties for campaign finance reporting violations. As part of the same proposed rules, the commission is considering changing its methods for resolving some disclosure complaints.
Currently, there is a three year backlog of complaints; this proposed rule-making is an effort to streamline the complaint process in order to reduce the backlog.
The commission meets December 3, 2015, to consider these new regulations.
