COMPLIANCE CASES MADE PUBLIC
WASHINGTON -- The Federal Election Commission has recently made public its final action on a matter previously under review (MURs). This release contains only summary information. Closed files should be thoroughly read for details, including the FECs legal analysis of the case. (See footnote at the end of this release.) Closed MUR files are available in the Public Records Office.
*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.
