§3-8-4a. Termination of political committees.

(a) A political committee may terminate by filing a written

request, in accordance with the provisions of section four of this

article, and by stating in the request that it will no longer

receive any contributions or make any disbursements and that it has

no outstanding debts or obligations. At such time, any excess

funds of the committee may be transferred to a political committee

established by the same candidate pursuant to the provisions of

section four or five-e of this article.

(b) The provisions of this section may not be construed to

eliminate or limit the authority of the secretary of state, in

consultation with the state election commission, to establish

procedures for: (1) The determination of insolvency with respect

to any political committee; (2) the orderly liquidation of an

insolvent political committee and the orderly application of its

assets for the reduction of outstanding debts; and (3) the

termination of an insolvent political committee after such

liquidation and application of assets.

(c) Notwithstanding any other provision of this code, any

political committee which has been terminated within three years

prior to the effective date of the reenactment of this section

during the regular session of the Legislature in the year two

thousand two, pursuant to a written request made in accordance with the provisions of section four of this article, may file a written

request and be authorized by the secretary of state to reestablish

the political committee. Any request to reestablish a political

committee pursuant to the provisions of this subsection must be

filed on or before the first day of July, two thousand two. The

provisions of this subsection may not be construed to increase the

maximum contribution authorized during an election cycle, as

provided in section twelve of this article.
