ATTENTION - Contribution Limit Increase
KRS 121.150(6) and (10) requires certain contribution limits to be indexed for inflation every odd-numbered year using the preceding year's percent increase in the non-seasonally adjusted annual average Consumer Price Index for all Urban Consumers (CPI-U), U.S. City Average, All Items, for that year as published by the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics and rounded to the nearest hundred dollars.
Accordingly, contribution limits for Candidates, Permanent Committees, and Contributing Organizations increased $100 effective January 1, 2023. This means the new contribution limit per election for Candidates, Permanent Committees, and Contributing Organizations is now $2,100.
This increase applies to the contribution limits for the 2023 Primary.
