This program will discuss independent-expenditure and independent-expenditure-only PACs or (super PACs, as they are called) and how they can be used to support or oppose candidates.
- This program will help nonprofits, corporations, trade associations, and individuals understand how they can make independent expenditures and create and operate a super PAC to support political candidates at the federal, state, and local levels
- You will learn the difference between contributions and expenditures, and how individuals, nonprofits, and corporations may make unlimited contributions to a super PAC to support or oppose candidates
- Because super PACs must remain independent of the candidates they support, this program will discuss what it means to impermissibly “coordinate” with a candidate, and what interactions are permissible
- You will also learn about disclosure related to independent expenditures and super PACs, including recent developments in the law at the federal, state, and local levels
