The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint filed by Glen Morgan on April 10, 2018. The complaint alleged that Washington Cannabusiness Association PAC (WACA PAC) may have violated RCW 42.17A.235, .265, .205, .220, .320, .255 for failure to timely and accurately disclose contributions, expenditures, books of account, committee registration, and sponsor ID.
Case Closed with Written Warning (Resolved 11/11/2018)
Pursuant to WAC 390-37-060(1)(b), Washington Cannabusiness Association PAC will receive a formal written warning concerning failure to timely file C-4 reports. The formal written warning will include staff’s expectation that Washington Cannabusiness Association PAC files timely and complete C-4 reports, including amending quickly when necessary, in future years in accordance with PDC laws and rules. The Commission will consider the formal written warning in deciding on further Commission action if there are future violations of PDC laws or rules.
Based on these facts, staff has determined that in this instance, failure to timely file a small number of C-4 reports covering minor activity, does not amount to an actual material violation warranting further investigation. The PDC has dismissed this matter in accordance with RCW 42.17A.755(1).
