REFERENCE: AMENDED 30 DAY POST-GENERAL REPORT (10/14/2010 – 11/22/2010),

RECEIVED 12/10/2010

Dear Treasurer:

Response Due Date 03/04/2011

This letter is prompted by the Commission’s preliminary review of the report(s)referenced above. This notice requests information essential to full public disclosure of your federal election campaign finances. Failure to adequately respond by the

response date noted above could result in an audit or enforcement action.

Additional information is needed for the following 1 item(s):

– Schedule A of your report indicates that your committee may have failed to file one or more of the required 48-hour notices regarding “last minute”

contributions received by your committee after the close of books for the 12 Day Pre-General Report (see attached). A principal campaign committee must

notify the Commission, in writing, within 48 hours of any contribution of $1,000 or more received between two and twenty days before an election.

These contributions are then reported on the next report required to be filed by the committee. To ensure that the Commission is notified of last minute

contributions of $1,000 or more to your campaign, it is recommended that you review your procedures for checking contributions received during the aforementioned time period.

The failure to file 48-hour notices may result in

civil money penalties or legal enforcement action. If any contribution of $1,000 or more was incorrectly reported, you must amend your original report

with the clarifying information. (11 CFR § 104.5(f))

Please note, you will not receive an additional notice from the Commission on this

matter. Adequate responses must be received by the Commission on or before the due

date noted above to be taken into consideration in determining whether audit action

will be initiated. Failure to comply with the provisions of the Act may also result in an

enforcement action against the committee. Any response submitted by your committee

will be placed on the public record and will be considered by the Commission prior to

taking enforcement action. Requests for extensions of time in which to respond will

not be considered.

Electronic filers must file amendments (to include statements, designations and reports)

in an electronic format and must submit an amended report in its entirety, rather than

just those portions of the report that are being amended.

If you should have any questions regarding this matter or wish to verify the adequacy

of your response, please contact me on our toll-free number (800) 424-9530 (at the

prompt press 5 to reach the Reports Analysis Division) or my local number (202)
