FEC to require online filings

FEC to require online filings

The Federal Election Commission by 2001 will require House of Representatives candidates to file campaign finance reports electronically, according to a new law.

The House included the mandate in the fiscal 2000 Treasury Department, Postal Service and general government appropriations bill. President Clinton signed the bill, HR 2490, into law late last month.

The requirement will affect candidates who raise a minimum amount of money.'The election commission must still set that threshold.

The provision also requires the commission to post campaign finance reports on the Internet within 24 hours of their receipt.
