APPEALS COURT ISSUES ORDER IN FREE SPEECH v. FEC

WASHINGTON – The United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit issued its Order on Monday in Free Speech v. FEC (Circuit Court Case: 12-8078), denying plaintiff's motion for injunction pending appeal. The text of the Order may be found here (http://www.fec.gov/law/litigation/freespeech_ac_order_mipa.pdf).

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 of Representatives, 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.
