Tell Congress to Repeal Prior Approval

Contact your U.S. representative to urge them to support the repeal of the burdensome prior approval requirement by co-sponsoring H.R. 2101 – the Prior Approval Reform Act. This legislation would repeal the prior approval requirement that discriminates against corporate-member trade association PACs, like AGC PAC.
Under the Federal Election Campaign Act, your company is required to grant written approval to AGC PAC if individuals on the administrative/executive team would like to learn more about the PAC and/or be solicited to contribute.  No other political entity, including corporate, labor union, and individual membership association PACs, is subject to the prior approval requirement.
AGC members have a constitutional right to join together in support of or in opposition to candidates for political office. Requiring prior approval discourages AGC members from participating in the national association's PAC, and creates an unequal playing field that restricts First Amendment rights to free speech. Help us repeal this burdensome requirement. Please contact your representative and urge them to co-sponsor H.R. 2101 today.
