SB 669 - This act requires all non-profit organizations exempt from taxation under Section 501(c)4 of the Internal Revenue Code to make certain disclosures regarding expenditures for the purpose of electioneering activities by means of covered communications made in the previous calendar year. The act further imposes a 48-hour reporting requirement once expenditures or certain contributions exceed $5,000. The Ethics Commission is required to assess fees on the board of directors of any covered organization in the same manner as are assessed against certain public officials who fail to file financial interest statements.
This act is identical to a provision in SB 588 (2018), and substantially similar to HB 1766 (2018), SB 339 (2017), and provisions in SB 570 (2016), SB 807 (2016), and SB 543 (2015).
The provisions of this act are effective beginning January 1, 2019.
