Breaking: New FEC Rules

BNA reports.  Looks like new rules to implement Citizens United passed 4-2, but without (for the moment) a decision to move forward on disclosure.  The FEC also approved (again, 4-2) the DNC/RNC request for an advisory opinion permitting the parties to raise funds for the 2016 conventions on top of the $32,400 calendar-year limit on contributions to the national party committees.  And by 5-1 votes, both Jack Trammell and David Brat get to keep their employer-paid health insurance while campaigning for Eric Cantor’s former seat.

[Update: FEC press release is here, with links to all of the new rules and advisory opinions.]
