AN ACT TO CLARIFY THE LAWS PERTAINING TO DISCLOSURE REQUIREMENTS FOR ELECTIONEERING COMMUNICATIONS.
Amends GS 163-278.6 concerning definitions for the regulation of political campaigns providing clarifying changes that the term "electioneering communication" includes communicated materials that refer to a clearly identified candidate for elected office, regardless of whether the candidate is opposed or unopposed in both the primary and general election for that office. Clarifies that the term "electioneering communication" does not include communications made while the General Assembly is in regular session, as defined in GS 163-278.13B(a)(3), concerning a specific piece of legislation introduced in either chamber of the General Assembly identified by bill number and short title, urging any audience to communicate with members of the General Assembly about a specific piece of legislation.
