On October 19, 2019, the Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) received a complaint alleging that the Sea-Tac Progress PAC, may have violated RCW 42.17A.205 by failing to timely and accurately file Committee Registration, to include the sponsor of the political action committee, and RCW 42.17A.235 and .240 for failure to properly report the purpose of expenditures, as required by WAC 390-16-205 and WAC 390-16-037.
PDC staff reviewed the allegations; the applicable statutes, rules, and reporting requirements; the applicable PDC reports filed by SeaTac Progress (Committee); and reviewed their data in the PDC database, to determine whether the record supports a finding of one or more violations.
Staff determined that the Committee failed to correctly identify the name of the city as "SeaTac" instead of "Searac." The Committee made a typographical error in the name of the city on their C-6 reports but listed the name of the city correctly on all C-3 and C-4 reports, including the Last-Minute Contribution (LMC) report. Staff issued a reminder as a result.
Based on this information, the PDC staff dismissed this matter in accordance with RCW 42.17A.755(1).Disposition: Case Closed with Reminder (Resolved 01/16/2020)
