The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) was created in 1972 with the passing of Initiative 276. We are led by a Commission —five commissioners appointed by the governor and confirmed by the state Senate—and an executive director. The Commission sets PDC policy and interprets and enforces the campaign finance and disclosure laws found in RCW 42.17A and WAC 390

We help political candidates, committees, lobbyists, elected officials, and others report timely and accurate financial disclosure data so the public can remain informed.
