Commission Modifies Program for Requesting Agency Consideration of Legal Questions

The Commission recently approved two modifications to its program that enables persons to request consideration of legal issues arising during the agency's report review and audit processes.

The first change clarifies that these requests must be submitted to the Commission Secretary, rather than the staff person involved in the matter. The second gives the FEC's Office of General Counsel up to five business days from receipt of an inquiry to resolve the matter informally. This informal process is intended to promote, where appropriate, an efficient and fair resolution of issues without the need for more formal consideration.

Created in 2010, the program was last modified in 2013 to provide an alternative electronic means to file a request. See 78 Fed. Reg. 63203 (October 23, 2013).

The latest changes were published in the Federal Register at 81 Fed. Reg. 29862 on May 13, 2016.
