A political action committee that was organized outside of Maine may be subject to the same requirements as a PAC organized under Maine law if it becomes involved elections in Maine. If an out-of-state PAC meets the qualifications for being a political action committee under Maine law, it is subject to the same registration and reporting requirements as PACs organized in-state. If the contributions or expenditures are made to influence a municipal election, a copy of the report must be filed with the municipal clerk, not the Commission.
An out-of-state PAC is not required to register and file reports with the Commission or municipality if the PAC’s only financial activity in the state is making contributions to other PACs, party committees, ballot question committees, or candidates registered with the Commission or municipality and the PAC has not raised or accepted any contributions to influence an election or campaign in Maine.
