New FEC Registration Forms Available; Lobbyist PACs Must Amend by March 29, 2009

March 12, 2009, Caplin & Drysdale Political Law Alert: Important Recent Developments

As part of the Federal Election Commission's new lobbyist bundling disclosure rules, any federal PAC "established" or "controlled" by a registered lobbyist (an individual or entity required to register or be listed under the Lobbying Disclosure Act) must amend its FEC Form 1 Statement of Organization on or before March 29, 2009. (A PAC not "established" or "controlled" by a registered lobbyist does not need to file any amendments.) To amend its Form 1, a Lobbyist PAC must check a new box on the Form that indicates it was "established" or is "controlled" by a registered lobbyist.

The newly issued Form 1 is found here: http://www.fec.gov/pdf/forms/fecfrm1.pdf. Please note that the FEC previously published an incorrect amendment deadline (March 30, 2009). The actual deadline is March 29, 2009.
