FEC Provides New Resources for 2014 Elections

The Federal Election Commission is making available online updated resources for those involved in the 2014 elections.  

The FEC now has available for download a new edition  of the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 11, Federal Elections , revised as of January 1, 2014. This includes the campaign finance regulations adopted and administered by the Federal Election Commission. This is a 'must have' publication for PACs, party committees, candidates, and reporters. When the FEC sends a letter or notification, it may cite various regulations, such as "Section 104.3." This publication will provide more detail on Section 104.3 dealing with contents of reports, and help people understand the rules.  

FEC Publishes New Contribution Limits for 2013-2014

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.
