State Party Candidate Contributions Unlimited

PAC Candidate Contributions Unlimited

Corporate Candidate Contributions Prohibited

Union Candidate Contributions Prohibited

No individual may make more than $25,000 in total contributions during a two-year election cycle. (a) Primary and general are considered separate elections; stated amount may be contributed in each election. (b) Candidates participating in “Clean Elections” public financing may not accept contributions after qualifying for public funds. Limits listed are for candidates not participating in public financing program. (c) In Arizona, a PAC that has received contributions from 500 or more individuals in amounts of $10 or more in a one-year period may qualify as a “Super PAC.” Qualification is valid for two years. (Ariz. Rev. Stat. §16-905(I)) (d) Direct corporate and/or union contributions are prohibited and/or use of treasury funds and/or dues is prohibited. In these states, the law specifically says that nothing prevents the employees or officers of a corporation from making political contributions through a PAC, using funds from an account that is separate and segregated from corporate accounts. Such contributions are subject to the same limitations placed on other PACs. (e) Full public financing is available to qualifying candidates for governor and lieutenant governor. A candidate who wishes to receive public funding may not solicit or accept any private contributions except qualifying contributions. (f) In Louisiana, a “Big PAC” is a PAC with over 250 members who contributed over $50 to the PAC during the preceding calendar year and has been certified as meeting that membership requirement. (g) In California, a “small contributor committee” is a committee which has been in existence for at least six months, receives contributions from 100 or more persons in amounts of not more than $200 per person, and makes contributions to five or more candidates. (Cal. Govt. Code §85203) (h) In Michigan, an “independent committee” must have filed a statement of organization at least 6 months before the election in which the committee wishes to make contributions; must have supported or opposed 3 or more candidates for nomination or election; and must have received contributions from at least 25 persons. (i) In Colorado, a “small donor committee” means any political committee that has accepted contributions only from natural persons who each contributed no more than $50 in the aggregate per year. (j) Any public utility that owns, controls or operates a railroad and is regulated by the Public Service Commission is prohibited from making political contributions (Ala. Code §10A-21-1.03) (k) Vermont’s attempt to limit out-of-state contributions to 25% of a candidate’s total contributions received was declared unconstitutional on August 18, 2004, by the U.S. 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals (Landell v. Sorrell, 382 F.3d 91 (2004)) (m) While these limits are specified in Oklahoma’s Ethics Rules, statutes have not been changed to reflect this limit. According to the statutes, any contribution in excess of $5,000 would constitute a criminal violation. (n) Corporations are no longer prohibited from making political contributions under New Hampshire law despite the language of NH RSA 664:4. That ban was declared unconstitutional by a federal district court in 1999. A June 6, 2000 letter from Deputy Attorney General Steven M. Houran indicates that the limits on individual contributions now apply to corporate contributions as well. (o) In Massachusetts, a "People's Committee" is a PAC that has been in existence for six months, has received contributions from individuals of $151 (adjusted biennially; this amount is for 2010-2011) or less per year, and has contributed to five candidates. It is unclear what advantage there would be to converting to a People's Committee, since the contribution limits are the same. (p) Contribution limits are adjusted for inflation at the beginning of each campaign cycle.
