Help AGC and Urge Congress to Repeal the “Prior Approval” Requirement for Trade Association PACs

AGC of America joined 113 other national trade associations on a letter urging members of the US House of Representatives to support H.R. 2101 - the Prior Approval Reform Act. You can help our efforts by contacting your representative to urge him or her to cosponsor H.R. 2101 - the Prior Approval Reform Act.
This bill, introduced by Rep. Mark Amodei (R-Nev.), would repeal the Federal Election Campaign Act’s “prior approval” requirement for corporate member trade association political action committees (PACs). In summary, this requirement discriminates against these associations by making their PACs the only political committees that must first obtain exclusive permission from member corporations before soliciting eligible employees for support. The Act’s onerous prior approval requirement is a relic from the past that is discriminatory, restricts First Amendment rights, and creates burdensome compliance costs and confusion.
