CFIF Seeks Narrow Rulemaking from FEC Regarding Rules Governing Disclosure of Electioneering Communications by Corporations and Labor Unions Print
Tuesday, October 09 2012

ALEXANDRIA, VA – The Center for Individual Freedom (“CFIF”) last week filed a Petition for Rulemaking with the Federal Election Commission ("FEC") that seeks a narrowly focused rulemaking to update and clarify the rules governing disclosure of any electioneering communications by corporations and labor unions.

CFIF's request is made in light of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision and in response to a recent decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, which concluded in CFIF v. Van Hollen that the meaning, proper application and interaction of the current regulations can be improved.
