• Completed Projects - Adopted rules regarding audits and investigation procedures


  • A new law enacted during the 2014 legislative session directed the Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board to adopt rules governing Board audit and investigation procedures. The law required the Board to use the expedited rulemaking process to adopt the rules.

  • The Board chair appointed a rulemaking committee to draft the proposed rules. After four meetings and a public hearing, the committee recommended a draft of the proposed rules to the Board. On July 8, 2014, the Board approved the proposed expedited rules and authorized the executive director to publish a Notice of Intent to Adopt Expedited Rules without a Public Hearing. The Notice and the proposed expedited rules were published in the State Register on July 28, 2014. Although a Statement of Need and Reasonableness was not required for expedited rules, the Board also prepared an explanation of its proposed expedited rules.

  • The Board received four comments during the official comment period, which ended on August 27, 2014. The Board incorporated many of the suggestions into the proposed rules. On October 7, 2014, the Board adopted the final version of the proposed rules.

  • The Office of Administrative Hearings approved the proposed rules on October 22, 2014. The Governor's Office approved the proposed rules on November 14, 2014. The Notice of Adoption was published in the State Register on December 1, 2014. The rules were effective upon publication in the State Register.
