Shana M Broussard

The Hon. Shana M. Broussard

Commissioner – Federal Election Commission (FEC)

Commissioner Broussard joined the Commission in 2008 as an attorney in the Enforcement Division of the Office of General Counsel.  Following her nomination to the Commission and confirmation in December 2020, she immediately assumed the position of Chair and led the agency’s effort to reduce an historic backlog of enforcement matters.  She has also spearheaded rulemaking efforts on internet communication disclaimers, technological modernizations, and to expand eligibility for candidate salaries to increase opportunities for individuals from underrepresented communities to run for federal office.  In addition to her official duties, Commissioner Broussard often speaks before industry groups, members of the Bar, and students about her work on the Commission.  Immediately prior to her confirmation, Commissioner Broussard was Counsel for FEC Commissioner Steven T. Walther.

Commissioner Broussard is a proud alumna of two historically black universities (HBCUs), earning her B.A. from Dillard University and her J.D. cum laude from Southern University Law Center.
