Petition for rulemaking on contributions from corporations and other organizations to political committees (2015)

July 30, 2015

On July 29, 2015, the Commission published a Notice of Availability seeking public comments on a Petition for Rulemaking on contributions from corporations and other organizations to political committees. The petition was filed by Make Your Laws PAC, Inc. and Make Your Laws Advocacy, Inc. (the “petitioners”).

The petitioners request that the Commission establish a rule requiring "any person, other than a natural person, contributing [directly or indirectly] an aggregate of more than $1,000 in any calendar year to any political committee" do so from an account that is subject to the registration and reporting requirements of the Act, and that contributions to these accounts be made only from natural persons or another such account. The petition also requests an express prohibition on direct or indirect contributions to the account from foreign nationals and disclosure of proximate and original sources "of all election-related contributions and expenditures, traceable through all intermediary entities to a natural person, regardless of the amounts or entities involved."

Public comments on the petition are due by October 27, 2015.
