RE: Your Letter of July
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.
