Comments of CCP Legal Director Allen Dickerson on Representative Christopher Van Hollen’s Petition to the FEC

On August 22, 2011, CCP Legal Director Allen Dickerson submitted comments to the Federal Election Commission (FEC) in opposition to a Petition for Rulemaking filed with the FEC by Representative Christopher Van Hollen on April 21, 2011.

CCP believes that Congressman Van Hollen’s petition misinterprets existing law while inappropriately attempting to enact by regulatory action what Congress has already rejected in 2010’s failed DISCLOSE Act.

If this petition was approved, the FEC would require broad, consitutionally-questionable disclosure requirements on a variety of organizations.

Comments of CCP Legal Director Allen Dickerson on the James Madison Center for Free Speech’s Petition to the FEC

On August 22, 2011, CCP Legal Director Allen Dickerson submitted comments to the Federal Election Commission (FEC) in support of a Petition for Rulemaking filed with the FEC by the James Madison Center for Free Speech on January 26, 2010.

CCP believes that the James Madison Center for Free Speech’s petition properly aligns FEC regulations with the understanding of the First Amendment recently articulated by the Supreme Court in its January 2010 decision in Citizens United v. FEC.

The FEC should approve this peition, effectively repealing existing FEC regulations that have since been invalidated by the Supreme Court.
