- (a) A person who fails to register when required by AS 15.13.050
(a) or who fails to file a properly completed and certified report within the time required by AS 15.13.040
, 15.13.060(b) - (d), 15.13.110(a)(1), (3), or (4), (e), or (f) is subject to a
civil penalty of not more than $50 a day for each day the delinquency continues as determined by the commission subject
to right of appeal to the superior court. A person who fails to file a properly completed and certified report within
the time required by AS 15.13.110
(a)(2) or 15.13.110(b) is subject to a civil penalty
of not more than $500 a day for each day the delinquency continues as determined by the commission subject to right of
appeal to the superior court. A person who violates a provision of this chapter, except a provision requiring
registration or filing of a report within a time required as otherwise specified in this section, is subject to a civil
penalty of not more than $50 a day for each day the violation continues as determined by the commission, subject to
right of appeal to the superior court. An affidavit stating facts in mitigation may be submitted to the commission by a
person against whom a civil penalty is assessed. However, the imposition of the penalties prescribed in this section or
in AS 15.13.380
does not excuse that person from registering or filing reports required by this chapter.
- (b) When an administrative complaint has been filed under AS 15.13.380, the commission shall give the respondent due
notice and an opportunity to be heard. If, at the conclusion of the hearing, the commission determines that the
respondent engaged in the alleged violation, the commission shall assess
- (1) civil penalties under (a) of this section;
- (2) the commission's costs of investigation and adjudication; and
- (3) reasonable attorney fees.
- (c) The commission's determination under (b) of this section may be appealed to the superior court under AS 44.62 (Administrative Procedure Act).
- (d) When an action has been filed in the superior court under AS 15.13.380, upon proof of the violation, the court shall
enter a judgment in the amount of the civil penalty authorized to be collected by (a) of this section.
- (e) If the commission or superior court finds that the violation was not a repeat violation or was not part of a series or
pattern of violations, was inadvertent, was quickly corrected, and had no adverse effect on the campaign of another,
the commission or the court may
- (1) suspend imposition of the penalties; and
- (2) order the penalties set aside if the person does not engage in a similar violation for a period of one year.
- (f) A party who has filed a civil action under AS 15.13.380
- (1) is not entitled to trial by jury on the civil action;
- (2) is not entitled to be represented by legal counsel at public expense.
