Mission and Purpose

Single Subject Amendment is a 527 organization and more specifically a Super PAC which is registered with the Federal Elections Commission. Its mission and the reason for its creation is to promote and to effectuate the addition of the 28th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States to provide that a law cannot be enacted by Congress unless it pertains to only one subject and that subject must be clearly expressed in its title. This provision is in the constitutions of 41 of the 50 states but is missing in the United States Constitution.

A 527 organization or 527 group is a type of U.S. tax-exempt organization organized under Section 527 of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code (26 U.S.C. § 527).

Technically, almost all political committees, including state, local, and federal candidate committees, traditional political action committees, “Super PACs“, and political parties are “527s.”

Federal law formally allows for two types of political action committees: connected and non-connected. Judicial decisions added a third classification, independent-expenditure only committees, which are colloquially known as “Super PACs”.

Super PACs, officially known as “independent-expenditure only committees,” may not make contributions to candidate campaigns or parties, but may engage in unlimited political spending independently of the campaigns. Unlike traditional PACs, they can raise funds from individuals, corporations, unions and other groups, without any legal limit on donation size.
