FEC May Reopen Coordination Rulemaking Comment Period

The Federal Election Commission just issued a press release indicating that the comment period for the coordinated communication rulemaking may be reopened.  From the release:

At the open meeting of the Federal Election Commission (FEC) today, Chairman Matthew S. Petersen said that the Commission is carefully studying the impact of last week’s Supreme Court opinion in Citizens United v. FEC. He noted that the ruling could have a significant impact on the Commission’s current and future rulemakings and could affect certain matters on the Commission’s enforcement docket and ongoing litigation. He announced that the Commission will provide guidance as soon as possible on the  reopening of the comment period for its rulemaking on coordinated communications to allow for more public input on the implications of the Supreme Court opinion in this area.

I will post more information as it becomes available.
