FEC to Revise PAC Registration Form 1 (Statement of Organization)
On January 13, the Federal Election Commission (FEC) decided to revise its PAC registration form to explicitly include designations for superPACs and Hybrid Committees.
At its open meeting, the FEC approved a motion instructing the agency’s staff to expand Form 1 (Statement of Organization).
SuperPACs, which are technically independent expenditure-only political committees, and Hybrid Committees, which in turn are committees with separate non-contribution accounts, are currently required to file separate letters along with Form 1 to receive those designations.
The Commission hopes to have the amended form for their review by February 14.
