RE: Your Letter of July 16, 2001
Dear Mr. Long:
This letter contains an opinion of this office being reported as per GS 163-278.23.
There is no legal requirement under GS 163-278.7A or any other North Carolina election law or regulation that requires a separate bank account to support only the North Carolina activities of an FEC-registered PAC. The conclusion in your July 16, 2001 letter is correct under the current law.
If any of the circumstances set out in your recent letter changes, please contact this office.
Gary O. Bartlett
