CLC Comments on Advisory Opinion Request Regarding Attribution of Trust Contributions


On October 18, 2022, Campaign Legal Center (CLC) filed a public comment with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) regarding an advisory opinion request on the attribution of contributions from a testamentary trust. CLC urged the FEC to attribute trust contributions to both the trust and trustees when the trustees have discretion over the contributions, consistent with the FEC’s rule for earmarked contributions and previous advisory opinions.
