Statement of organization to be filed for ballot question committee--Time for
filing--Violation as misdemeanor.
If the treasurer for a ballot question committee does not file a
statement of organization pursuant to chapter 2-1, the treasurer shall file a statement of organization
with the secretary of state not later than fifteen days after the date which the committee made
contributions, received contributions, or paid expenses in excess of five hundred dollars. However,
if such activity falls within thirty days of any statewide election, the statement of organization shall
be filed within forty-eight hours. A ballot question committee that regularly files a campaign finance
disclosure statement with another state or the Federal Election Commission or a report of
contributions and expenditures with the Internal Revenue Service is not required to file a statement
of organization. A violation of this section is a Class 2 misdemeanor.
