Updated Program for Requesting Consideration of Legal Questions by the Commission

Requests for Commission consideration of legal questions that arise during the compliance process now may be submitted electronically. This change, announced in the Federal Register on October 23, 2013, does not otherwise alter the Commission’s existing policy regarding such requests. See 76 Fed. Reg. 45798 (August 1, 2011).

Under the policy, when the Reports Analysis Division or the Audit Division requests that a person or entity take corrective action during the report review or audit process, and the person or entity disagrees with the request based upon a material dispute on a question of law, that person or entity may seek Commission consideration of the issue.

Requests for Commission consideration must be received within 15 business days from the notification by the Reports Analysis Division or the Audit Division. By submitting these requests electronically, individuals may avoid delays in the processing and receipt of requests mailed to the Commission. Electronic requests may be submitted by email to LegalRequestProgram@fec.gov.
