FEC Releases Witness List For Hearing On Proposed Coordinated Communications Rules

The Federal Election Commission (“FEC”) just released the witness list for the coordinated communications rulemaking hearings to be held on March 2nd and 3rd. 

The comments filed in response to the original coordinated communications notice of proposed rulemaking (“NPRM”) can be found here.  The supplemental NPRM comments are here.

In the wake of Citizens United v. FEC, the regulatory line between independent speech and coordinated communications is an important issue for the 2010 midterm elections.  Candidates, political party committees and outside groups will be watching these proceeding closely because of their potential impact on this election cycle.
