Notice of Proposed Amendments to Campaign Finance Regulations


April 1, 2024

At its regular meeting on Friday, April 12, 2024, the San Francisco Ethics Commission will consider and possibly act on a set of proposed amendments to the Ethics Commission’s campaign finance regulations.

The proposed regulation changes would discontinue the current Signature Verfication Card (Form SFEC-112a) requirement and allow for the entire process of establishing a committee to be completed electronically. This regulation change will allow for the Commission to take advantage of recent advancements in secure electronic signature technology and move to a more modern, streamlined approached, that will make it easier for committees to sign and submit their campaign documents.

The prosed regulations changes would also clarify other terms and obligations regarding Article I, Chapter 1 of the City’s Campaign and Governmental Conduct Code. These other changes relate to the establishment of a committee’s bank account, information collected by a committee from their donors, home or office fundraisers, and the provision of documents. The regulations also correct an error regarding conditional certification to receive public financing.

This 10-day notice is provided under Charter Sec. 4.104 to encourage public comment on the proposals in advance of the Commission’s next meeting.

The Commission invites all input on the proposed regulations. Written comments can be sent via email to Written public comment received by 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 11, 2024, will be included in the Commission’s packet of meeting materials for its April 12, 2024 meeting. Opportunity for public comment will also be provided during the Commission’s meeting.
