Pay-to-play rules and regulations, including the well-known Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) pay-to-play-rules, have become a focal point for compliance teams navigating the midterm elections in 2022. However, even in off years, or years with no major elections, for those firms who rely heavily on government contracted work, political contribution compliance can’t just turn off.
