APOC: Get our advice before running ads

Posted: Wednesday, March 10, 2010

JUNEAU - Corporations in Alaska won't get a pass on campaign disclosure rules in the August primaries if pending bills pass into law this session.

That's according to Holly Hill, executive director of the Alaska Public Offices Commission.

If the bills are approved, the regulations likely won't be written in time for the August elections. But she says that wouldn't make the effect of the measures moot.

Hill says corporations exercising their new political free speech rights granted by a January U.S. Supreme Court decision should seek an advisory opinion from her agency.

Hill says her office has gotten calls questioning the decision's impact, but no corporations have requested an advisory opinion.
