What is Changing Effective January 1st
Important transition note: A contribution is “made” when the candidate receives the actual payment. Example, if a Mayoral candidate receives a check for $2,000 on January 2nd, but the check is dated 12/30/2019, the new $1,000 limit applies and the candidate must return the excess $1,000 to the contributor within 72 hours of receipt.
