CLC Urges Federal Election Commission to Reject Proposed Disclosure Exemption Directive


On May 15, 2024, Campaign Legal Center (CLC) filed a comment urging the Federal Election Commission (FEC) to reject a proposed directive regarding disclosure exemptions. CLC’s comment argues that the FEC lacks the authority under the Federal Election Campaign Act (FECA) to approve such exemptions, and that the proposed directive fails to give sufficient weight, as mandated by the Supreme Court, to the crucial First Amendment interests implicated by disclosure exemptions in the electoral context.
