Commission Approves Package of Legislative Recommendations

On December 17, 2013, the Commission unanimously approved eight legislative recommendations for consideration by Congress:

  • Deleting the exclusion of Commission staff from eligibility for the Senior Executive Service;
  • Making permanent the Administrative Fine Program for late- and non-filed reports;
  • Authorizing the Commission to accept gifts that will help the agency carry out its functions;
  • Requiring electronic filing for all Senate candidates and their authorized committees;
  • Requiring electronic filing of electioneering communications reports;
  • Extending the prohibition on the personal use of campaign funds to all political committees;
  • Increasing and indexing for inflation certain committee registration and reporting thresholds; and
  • Expanding the prohibitions on fraudulent misrepresentation of campaign authority.

Congress has since passed legislation that extends the Administrative Fine Program to cover activity through December 31, 2018, and authorizes the Commission to expand the program's scope. On January 13, 2014, the Commission approved rules to implement the extension.
