|COMPLIANCE CASE MADE PUBLIC|
WASHINGTON -- The Federal Election Commission has recently made public its
final action on one matter previously under review (MURs). This release
contains only disposition information.
Specific documents placed on the public record within the following closed MURs are cited following the DISPOSITION heading. Release of these documents is consistent with the Commission's Statement of Policy Regarding Disclosure of Closed Enforcement and Related Files, approved December 11, 2003, pursuant to the circuit court opinion in AFL-CIO v. FEC. While the policy takes effect on January 1, 2004, the Commission has chosen to release documents corresponding to the policy in all cases closed after December 11.
*There are four administrative stages to the FEC enforcement process:
It requires the votes of at least four of the six Commissioners to take any action. The FEC can close a case at any point after reviewing a complaint. If a violation is found and conciliation cannot be reached, then the FEC can institute a civil court action against a respondent.
