Attorney General fines Washington Budget and Policy Center

Jul 17, 2017 - 06:15 PM

The Attorney General’s Office today announced that the Washington Budget and Policy Center will pay $30,545 over campaign finance violations.

The Center failed to properly report its independent expenditures in opposition to Initiative 1366 in 2015.

A Thurston County Superior Court judge ordered the Center to pay $33,510 in penalties, with half suspended for four years contingent on no violations in that period, as well as $13,790 in attorney fees, court costs and costs of investigation.

The Attorney General’s Office enforces the state’s campaign finance disclosure law to ensure free, open and fair elections in Washington state.
