No Appeal of Florida Electioneering Communications Case

The Orlando Sentinel reports that Florida will not appeal a federal court decision striking Florida’s electioneering communications rule.

The now-scrapped law required so-called electioneering communications organizations, or ECOs as they’re known in Florida, to follow a number of regulations: registering with the government within 24 hours of their creation; appointing a campaign treasurer; making regular reports disclosing all donors and expenses; restricting expenditures and contributions, including not spending money raised in the five days before the election; and including a prominent “disclaimer” on each communication that disclosed the group’s name.
