The Public Disclosure Commission is soliciting comment on proposed permanent rules to implement a new state law regarding foreign involvement and financing in campaign activities.
Earlier this year, the Legislature passed Substitute Senate Bill 6152 prohibiting foreign national financing or involvement in campaign-related contribution or expenditure activity. The law also requires entities to certify that any contributions they make do not include any foreign national funding or involvement.
The Commission has scheduled a public hearing on the permanent rules for Dec. 3. Written comment can be provided in advance. Please send comments to firstname.lastname@example.org, attention Sean Flynn, by Nov. 23. Any feedback received will be considered in preparing the final draft to recommend for possible approval by the Commission on Dec. 3.
