Board of Elections Proposes Independent Expenditure Rules

Chris Bragg reports in the Times Union on the State Board Of Elections effort to regulate independent expenditure committees.

“Douglas Kellner, the Democratic co-chair of the Board of Elections, said in an email that he was “not aware of any particular issue of disagreement, but everyone is being careful to reconcile the differences between various models we are looking at, including the federal and New York City regulations, as well as regulations adopted in other states.”

The regulations include proposed rules for labor unions and other membership organizations, which are exempt from some aspects of disclosure of spending targeted to their own memberships.”
