WASHINGTON, June 3 /U.S. Newswire/ — The Republican National Committee (RNC) today submitted comments to the Federal Election Commission regarding the Commission’s Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on Internet Communications.

“The RNC strongly supports a view of the Internet as an open public square where political ideas may be exchanged freely, without burdensome federal oversight or regulation that potentially discourages the use of the Internet in the political arena,” RNC Chief Counsel Tom Josefiak said.

Among the RNC’s suggestions is that many, if not all, bloggers should be included under the FEC’s media exemption rules.
