FEC Publishes New Contribution Limits for 2013-2014
Posted at 9:36 a.m. on April 8
In response to last week’s Supreme Court case, the Federal Election Commission has published a chart of new contribution limits for the 2013-2014 election cycle.
The opinion in the U.S. Supreme Court case, McCutcheon v. FEC, tossed out the aggregate contribution limits on political contributions. The new FEC Reference chart shows there is no limit on the aggregate amount an individual may give to federal candidates. An individual had been limited to giving a two-year aggregate amount of $48,600.
The new chart also shows no limit on the amount an individual may give to political party committees. An individual had been limited to giving a two-year aggregate amount of $74,600 to other committees, of which no more than $48,600 of this amount may be given to committees that are not national party committees.
