APOC Proposes Changes to State Regulations
The Alaska Public Offices Commission proposes to adopt regulation changes concerning mitigation criteria and penalty assessment for violations of state lobbying and campaign finance laws. Substantive changes include expanding the definition of inexperienced filer to take into account technical issues, defining self-reporting, and limiting penalties to be considered out of proportion to the alleged violation.
Written comments must be submitted to the Commission by January 29, 2016. Oral comments may be submitted at a hearing on February 11, 2016 in Anchorage. The Commission will aggregate its response to substantially similar questions and make the questions and responses available on its website.
