FEC Issues Advisory Opinion
WASHINGTON – The Federal Election Commission today issued an Advisory Opinion concerning whether an authorized committee of a federal candidate may raise contributions subject to a separate contribution limit for a primary election ordered by a federal court.
The Federal Election Commission (FEC) is an independent regulatory agency that administers and enforces federal campaign finance laws. The FEC has jurisdiction over the financing of campaigns for the U.S. House of Representatives, the U.S. Senate, the Presidency and the Vice Presidency. Established in 1975, the FEC is composed of six Commissioners who are nominated by the President and confirmed by the U.S. Senate.
