GEC reviewing new mandates for expense reporting

Posted: Updated:

Guam - In preparing to update its administration of rules and regulations, the Guam Election Commission continues to review the election reform law. And according to executive director Maria Pangelinan, the new law lays out new reporting requirements for anyone who generates campaign contributions or expenditures such as those campaigning for public office or who currently hold an election position. She says in the past, when $100,000 or more was collected or spent, individuals were required to report it to the GEC however the new law has reduced the threshold for reporting dramatically.

"So if people are out there campaigning and they make $250 or they spend $250 on campaign expenditures, 10 days after that according to the law, they have to report to the election commission," she stated.

Pangelinan says the new provision creates more accountability however it does require more manhours to track the reporting requirement. She adds the GEC staff and legal counsel will continue to review the law for other new mandates.
