This complaint was filed with the Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) on March 28, 2018. The complaint alleged that that the Spokane Valley Firefighters PAC may have violated RCW 42.17A.235 by failing to timely and accurately file contribution (C-3 reports) and expenditure (C-4) reports.
PDC staff reviewed the allegations; the applicable statutes, rules, and reporting requirements; the applicable C-3 and C-4 reports filed by the Committee; and the response provided by the Committee.
Staff found that the Committee failed to file one C-3 report and a few C-4 reports for election years 2015, 2016 and 2017. However, while these reports were late, they contained minimal contribution and expenditure activities. Based on this information, staff found no evidence of a material violation that would require conducting a more formal investigation or pursuing an enforcement action.
Case dismissed with a reminder letter.
