“Relatively Nonintrusive”

FEC Signals Light Hand on Web Campaigning

The Federal Election Commission revealed yesterday that it plans to take what one of its commissioners termed a “relatively nonintrusive” approach to regulating political campaigns on the Internet.

[…] Its “notice of proposed rulemaking,” as it is known, indicates that the FEC is focusing much of its attention on whether to apply federal contribution limits on online political advertising campaigns. It also indicates that the six-member panel has not decided to impose, but is leaning against imposing, restrictions on independent bloggers or bloggers who work for political campaigns.
