Based on staff's investigation, an Enforcement Hearing was scheduled before the Full Commission on February 27, 2018.  At the Enforcement Hearing, the Commission Officer accepted the signed Stipulation as to Facts, Violations and Penalty between Mr. Anderson and PDC staff, that included violations of WAC 390-16-125 by exceeding the limitations of the Mini Reporting Option and RCW 42.17A.205, .235 and .240, by failing to change reporting options and file C-3 and C-4 reports disclosing campaign contribution and expenditure information.
