This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

Rulemaking on State, District, and Local Party Committee Payment of Certain Salaries and Wages
On May 4, 2005, the Commission published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (“NPRM”) proposing revisions to rules that cover what mixture of Federal and non-Federal funds can be used by State, District and local party committees to pay salaries and wages for persons who spend 25 percent or less of their compensated time in a month on Federal election activity or on activity in connection with a Federal election. The comment period for this NPRM ended on June 3, 2005. The Commission received five comments in response to this NPRM. Six commenters who submitted three of the comments requested to testify at a public hearing if one is held.
After considering these requests and the other comments received to date in response to this NPRM, the Commission believes a public hearing would be helpful in considering the issues raised in the rulemaking. The hearing will be held on August 4, 2005.
Rulemaking on Definition of Federal Election Activity
