The advisory opinion request documents can be downloaded in Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) format.  For more information, see downloading instructions for the Acrobat Reader.

Each Advisory Opinion is based on the relevant statutory and regulatory provisions in effect at the time the Advisory Opinion was adopted.  The New York City Campaign Finance Act and the Rules of the New York City Campaign Finance Board have been amended several times since many of the Board’s advisory opinions were issued.  You should consult the current versions of the Act and Rules to ensure that the reasoning and conclusions of an Advisory Opinion are still applicable, or contact the Board’s Legal Unit at (212) 306-7100.
