(2) Thereafter, any such person or committee must file a supplemental statement and an original copy of the communication each time that the person or committee makes or incurs an additional expense of $5,000 or more.

C&GC Code Section 1.152(a)(3) to make an independent determination regarding which candidate or candidates for the Board of Supervisors the communication actually supports or opposes or whether the communication is neutral. Such requests must be filed with the Executive Director within three business days from the date the original or copy of the communication is filed.
