CLC Files Comment on FEC’s Candidate Salary Rulemaking


On February 9, 2023, Campaign Legal Center (CLC) filed a comment on the Federal Election Commission’s (FEC) proposed rules governing the compensation candidates may receive from their campaigns. The comment generally supports the proposed rules, noting that they will eliminate financial barriers that prevent people with less wealthy backgrounds from running for federal office, while preserving important limits on candidates misusing campaign funds for personal enrichment.
