Rules regarding audit and investigation procedures

A new law enacted during the 2014 legislative session directs the Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board to adopt rules governing Board audit and investigation procedures. The law requires 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.

Although a Statement of Need and Reasonableness is not required for expedited rules, the Board has prepared an explanation of its proposed expedited rules.

At its July meeting, the Board also 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 will be published in the State Register on Monday, July 28, 2014.
