launched a new, online system by which corporations, unions, and industry trade and professional associations can report political contributions electronically.
These groups will have the opportunity to file their Reports of Political Contributions online rather than complete the paper form known as the B-7. The report discloses the group’s campaign contributions in connection with state elections, local elections, and ballot questions. The new system will be more efficient for both the filers and the Commission.
“The new online reporting system will save valuable time for the filers and the Commission,” said Frank Daley, Executive Director for the Nebraska Accountability and Disclosure Commission. “In an election year, the Commission typically receives more than 2,500 of these reports. By having these reports submitted electronically, the Commission can make this information available to the press and public on the day of receipt.”
