Introduced  by  Sen.  MYRIE  -- read twice and ordered printed, and when
  printed to be committed to the Committee on Elections

AN ACT to amend the election law,  in  relation  to  requiring  campaign
  finance information of certain candidates or committees to be filed on
  an electronic reporting system


  Section 1. Subdivisions 4 and 5 of section 14-102 of the election law,
subdivision 4 as amended and subdivision 5 as added by  chapter  406  of
the laws of 2005, are amended to read as follows:
  4.  Any  committee which is required to file statements with any board
of elections pursuant to this article [and which  raises  or  spends  or
expects to raise or spend more than one thousand dollars in any calendar
year]  shall file all such statements pursuant to the electronic report-
ing system prescribed by the state board of elections as  set  forth  in
subdivision nine-A of section 3-102 of this chapter. Notwithstanding the
provisions  of this subdivision, upon the filing of a sworn statement by
the treasurer of a political committee which states that such  political
committee  does  not  have  access to the technology necessary to comply
with the electronic filing requirements of subdivision nine-A of section
3-102 of this chapter and that filing by such means would  constitute  a
substantial  hardship  for  such political committee, the state board of
elections may issue an exemption from the electronic filing requirements
of this article.
  [5. Any committee which is required to  file  statements  pursuant  to
this  article with county boards of elections shall file in paper format
to the county board of elections or in electronic format if the legisla-
tive body of any county provides, by local  law,  an  electronic  filing
system and shall file such statements by electronic reporting process to
the state board of elections.]

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
