Emergency rules govern foreign involvement in financing campaigns
The Commission adopted emergency rules to implement a new state law governing foreign involvement in financing campaigns in Washington state.
The law, Substitute Senate Bill 6152, was approved during the 2020 session of the Legislature with an effective date of June 11, 2020. The PDC’s emergency rules take effect the same date.
The rules apply through the 2020 election cycle. The Commission received public comment on the emergency rules, and plans to include additional opportunities for the public to comment before it adopts permanent rules this fall.
