FEC to Meet on January 24

Washington – The Federal Election Commission (FEC/ the Commission) will hold its first open meeting of 2008 on Thursday January 24, at which time the Commission will discuss Advisory Opinions and agency administrative matters. 

The procedural rules of the Commission have been modified to permit meetings when the Commission has fewer than four Members, in order to discuss any matter normally considered in open session while taking action only on certain administrative matters including, for example, public information and outreach.

The meeting will be held at 10:00 a.m. in the 9th floor hearing room at the Commission’s offices located at 999 E Street N.W. in Washington.

 

The Federal Election Commission (FEC) is an independent regulatory agency that administers and enforces federal campaign finance laws. The FEC has jurisdiction over the financing of campaigns for the U.S. House, the U.S. Senate, the Presidency and the Vice Presidency. Established in 1975, the FEC is composed of six Commissioners who are nominated by the President and confirmed by the U.S. Senate.
