Petition for rulemaking on advisory opinion comments

December 4, 2018

On December 3, 2018, the Commission published a notice of availability in the Federal Register (83 Fed. Reg. 62283) in response to a rulemaking petition that asks the agency to promulgate rules concerning public comments on draft advisory opinions (AOs).

The petition asks the Commission to modify its regulation at 11 CFR 112.3 to establish specific time periods for public comment on draft AOs, and to require the Commission to identify the differences between any competing drafts.

The Commission seeks written comments on the petition on or before February 1, 2019. Commenters are encouraged to submit comments electronically (reference REG 2016-01) via the Commission’s website.
