CLC Petition for Rulemaking re List Swap Disclosure


Federal law requires political committees to publicly disclose all of their receipts and disbursements, but the Federal Election Commission has issued a series of opinions that ignore these requirements and unlawfully exempt committees from disclosing their receipt and disbursement of valuable lists they exchange with other committees. CLC has filed a rulemaking petition asking the Commission to amend its regulations to clarify that a political committee’s receipt or disbursement of mailing lists and other valuable information must be reported.
