Statement of Basis and Purpose of Proposed Rules

The Campaign Finance Board (the “CFB” or “Board”) is a nonpartisan, independent City agency that empowers New Yorkers to make a greater impact in elections. The CFB administers the City’s campaign finance system, overseeing and enforcing the regulations related to campaign finance and holding candidates accountable for using public funds responsibly. The CFB publishes detailed public information about money raised and spent in City elections by candidates and independent spenders, and engages and educates voters through community outreach, the Voter Guide, and the Debate Program.

The CFB is proposing amendments to several of its rules regarding public funds payments and repayments, registration and certification, proof of compliance with the Conflicts of Interest Board (“COIB”), deadlines for submitting certain documents and completing a compliance training, disclosure statements, contribution limits, transfers of funds, qualified expenditures, independent expenditures, expenditures in special elections, and the Voter Guide.

The CFB is proposing these amendments to improve the administration of the Campaign Finance Program and to conform to, and facilitate implementation of and compliance with, amendments made to the City Charter by the 2018 and 2019 Charter Revision Commissions; Local Laws No. 1 and 128 for the year 2019, codified in sections 3-702, 3-703, 3-704, 3-705, 3-706, 3-708, 3-709, 3-709.5, 3-710, 3-713, 3-720, 3-801, and 12-110 of the Administrative Code of the City of New York (the “Code”) and sections 1052 and 1152 of the City Charter; section 14 of chapter 5 of the laws of 2019, codified in section 8-100(1) of the New York State Election Law; and section 8 of chapter 6 of the laws of 2019, codified in § 8-600 of the New York State Election Law.

A summary of the substantive changes is in the attached file.
