On March 10, 2022, the Commission approved an updated version of the Statement of Organization (FEC Form 1). The updated form includes options to register as an independent expenditure-only committee (Super PAC) or committee with a non-contribution account (Hybrid PAC).
Currently, Super PACs and Hybrid PACs register by attaching a cover letter to the FEC Form 1 that expresses their intention to operate as either a Super PAC or Hybrid PAC. The updated form will obviate the need for a cover letter. Instead, Super PACs will simply select new option 5(g) on page 2 of the form, and Hybrid PACs will select new option 5(h).
The Commission will incorporate these changes into the electronic filing format and anticipates that the new FEC Form 1 will be available to filers by the end of May.
