As of August 20, 2010, the required disclosure reports had not been received from:
The reports were due on August 12, 2010, and should have included financial activity for the period July 1, 2010, through August 4, 2010. If sent by certified or registered mail, the reports should have been postmarked by August 9, 2010.

Those committees that did not file on the due date were sent notification on August 13, 2010 that their reports had not been received and that their names would be published if they did not respond within four business days.
