Summary
Controversies recently have arisen over certain executive branch agencies' expeditures of appropriated funds on public relations activities, some of which have been characterized as propagandistic. General speaking, there are two legal restrictions on agency public relations activities and propaganda. 5 U.S.C. 3107 prohibits the use of appropriated funds to hire publicity experts. Appropriations law "publicity propaganda" clauses restrict the use of funds for puffery of an agency, purely partisan communicatoins, and covert propaganda. No federal agency monitors federal public relations activities, but a Member or Committee of Congress may ask the Government Accountability Office (GAO) to examine an agency's expeditures on public relations activities with a view to their legality. Any effort to reform current statutory restrictions on agency public relations activities will face two challenges: defining "propaganda" and tracking public relations activities by agencies
