Under the 2006 Comprehensive Governmental Ethics Reform Act, a new statute was enacted under Title 2, Chapter 10, Part 3, to prohibit a person from making cash contributions to any candidate with respect to any election that, in the aggregate, exceed $50. Further provisions of that act also prohibit any individual from contributing more than $101,400 in the aggregate to all candidates, multicandidate political campaign committees, and political campaign committees controlled by a political party. Of this amount, no more than $40,000 may be contributed toward candidates. These limits are increased in every odd-numbered year to reflect the percentage of change in the average consumer price index; however, the $50 limit on cash contributions does not increase.
