Arizona panel may suspend reporting requirement

Arizona’s public campaign finance commission on Thursday considers a housekeeping matter stemming from the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to block so-called matching funds.

The Citizens Clean Elections Commission will consider whether to suspend a requirement that privately funded candidates submit special reports when their fundraising exceeds specified amounts.

Those reports are part of the state’s system to provide matching funds to publicly funded candidates being outspent by privately financed rivals or targeted by independent expenditures.

But the Supreme Court has put matching funds on hold pending a ruling on their constitutionality, so the commission will consider whether to also do away with the special reports.
