(3) A continuing political committee, as that term is defined in RCW 42.17A.005, is not required to comply with the provisions of RCW 42.17A.225 through 42.17A.240, except as otherwise prescribed in WAC 390-16-038, 390-16-115, and 390-16-125, if the committee selects the mini reporting option on its registration and meets both of the following conditions:
