Agency: Federal Election Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Federal Election Commission (``Commission'') adopted a program on August 1, 2011, providing for a means by which persons and entities may have a legal question considered by the Commission earlier in both the report review process and the audit process. On October 23, 2013, the Commission revised this policy to provide an alternative electronic means to file a request with the Commission. On May 13, 2016, the Commission further revised this policy to clarify that requests for consideration must be submitted to the Commission Secretary to ensure that such requests are processed in a timely manner, and to build five business days into the program to allow time for the informal resolution of matters. The Commission is now republishing the policy to reflect the Commission's new mailing address. The Commission, however, is not making any substantive changes to the policy published on May 13, 2016.
