“The commission has been reluctant to change the rules of the game in the middle of the election season, so that would be something we would want to seriously consider,” FEC Chairwoman Caroline Hunter told reporters.
The Washington Post reported that the commission on Thursday delayed a scheduled vote on proposed new rules because of ongoing disagreement over dueling Republican and Democratic proposals.
Instead, commissioners will meet next week to present a single proposal. They will then begin a public comment process, which Hunter said will take “a little bit of time.”
The six-member commission has two vacancies. Hunter, the chairwoman, is a Republican.
