There are two types of political organizations in Florida: political committees (PCs) and electioneering communication organizations (ECOs).
A political committee is a combination of two or more individuals, or a person that spends or receives more than $500 during a calendar year
to support or oppose any candidate, issue, political committee, affiliated party committee or political party. A PC may make independent expenditures. [FS 106.011(16)]
An electioneering communication organization is an organization whose election-related activities are limited to making expenditures or accepting contributions
for the purpose of electioneering communications and whose activities would not otherwise require the group to register as a political party or political committee.
Florida Statute Chapter 106 of the Election Laws includes the definitions, limitations, requirements and other information about both types of political organizations in Florida.
The Florida Division of Elections also has a Committee and Campaign Treasurer Handbook available online.
