Speaking Up on Campaign Finance Reform

We helped the business community secure a clear and reasonable method for the reporting of so-called bundled political contributions to the Federal Elections Commission (FEC). Nossaman established the Coalition for Tax Equity to bring together big name corporations concerned about the reporting requirements. We represent their interests in a unified way to counter consumer groups that argued during the 2008 rulemaking that ‘bundled' political donations should be reported multiple times and that aggregate amounts should be attributed to multiple ‘bundlers.'

We were the lone voice of reason from the business community arguing against this unfounded interpretation which would have grossly overstated contribution amounts and artificially inflated the scope of would be bundlers. The bipartisan FEC agreed with our persuasive reasoning. They adopted a final rule that prescribes a straightforward and accurate reporting method that benefitted our clients and fosters a truly transparent political process.
