FEC issues draft rules on blogging & politics
Over at CNET.com, Declan McCullough covers the late-Friday release of the nearly-final FEC regulations on blogging and political activity.
Here at P&T, we haven't had a chance to review things closely just yet - but wanted to point you to the draft rules right away. Declan's view:
If the regulations are approved by the FEC at its meeting on Monday, they will represent a substantial change from a far more aggressive version of the regulations seen by CNET News.com last year. An outcry from bloggers and even members of Congress appears to have caused FEC lawyers--who are under court order to regulate the Internet--to rethink the rules and adopt a more laissez-faire approach.
We're going to dig in to the final rules -- expected in a vote Monday -- and report back to you by the end of the month. If you want the full 96-page PDF, download it here.
