(See chart below for the closing date for each report.)

Unauthorized Committees (PACs and Party Committees)

Political committees that file on a semiannual basis during 2001 are subject to special election reporting if they make previously undisclosed contributions or expenditures in connection with the South Carolina Special Primary, Runoff or General Elections by the close of books for the applicable report(s). Consult the chart below that corresponds to the committee's situation for close of books and filing date information.

Since disclosing financial activity from two different calendar years on one report would conflict with the calendar year aggregation requirements stated in the Commission's disclosure rules, unauthorized committees that trigger the filing of the consolidated Post-General & Year-End Report will be required to file this report on two separate forms. One form to cover 2001 activity, labeled as the Year-End Report; and the other form to cover only 2002 activity, labeled as the Post-General Report. Both forms must be filed by the due date for the consolidated report, January 17, 2002. Start Printed Page 46636

Committees filing monthly that support candidates in the South Carolina Special Primary, Special Runoff or Special General Elections should continue to file according to the non-election year monthly reporting schedule.
