Probably the most important aspect of operating a modern political committee is complying with disclosure and campaign finance obligations. The Federal Election Commission has strict contribution limits, reporting requirements, and imposes large civil penalties for violating campaign finance laws. With over 8.5 billion dollars expected to be spent in the 2016 elections, the campaign finance system is growing even more competitive which has increased the scrutiny from government regulators, watch dogs and the media.
