The Public Disclosure Commission is seeking public comment on proposed permanent rules that would help implement 2019 legislation that clarified some areas of the state’s campaign finance disclosure law, enacted reforms to make reporting easier and more useful, and improved the public’s access to information. 

SHB 1195, agency-request legislation that was the product of public and stakeholder engagement, makes changes to financial affairs disclosure (F-1) reporting, the modification process in which filers can request exemptions to requirements, and makes electronic filing mandatory when the option exists.

A public hearing on the proposed permanent rules is scheduled for Dec. 5, 2019 at 9:45 a.m. at the PDC office, 711 Capitol Way S., Suite 206, Olympia, WA. Written comments should be submitted no later than Nov. 25, 2019  to pdc@pdc.wa.gov.    

The proposed changes to the rules are:

Chapter 390-19 WAC Electronic filing

Chapter 390-20 WAC Lobbying regulations
