Limitations on Contributions by Individuals, Non-Multicandidate Committees and Certain Political Party Committees Giving to U.S. Senate Candidates for the 2021–2022 Election Cycle The Act requires inflation indexing of: (1) The limitations on contributions made by persons under 52 U.S.C. 30116(a)(1)(A) (contributions to VAP × .02 × the price index (5.24905) Senate expenditure limit (the greater of the amount in column 3 or $105,000) 354,900 1,066,900 89,800 430,400 70,800 564,100 2,301,800 243,600 53,600 705,900 632,800 150,000 480,200 47,200 354,900 1,066,900 105,000 430,400 105,000 564,100 2,301,800 243,600 105,000 705,900 632,800 150,000 480,200 105,000 3,380,729 10,162,497 855,276 4,100,115 674,238 5,373,433 21,925,627 2,320,603 510,181 6,724,143 6,027,818 1,428,520 4,574,131 449,237 candidates) and 30116(a)(1)(B) (contributions to national party committees); and (2) the limitation on contributions made to U.S. Senate candidates by certain political party committees at 52 U.S.C. 30116(h). See 52 U.S.C. 30116(c). These contribution limitations are increased by multiplying the respective statutory contribution amount by 1.46170, the percent difference between the price index, as certified to the Commission by the Secretary of Labor, for the 12 months preceding the beginning of the calendar year and the price index for the base period (calendar year 2001). 52 U.S.C. 30116(c)(1)(B)(i), (2)(B)(ii). The resulting amount is rounded to the nearest multiple of $100. See 52 U.S.C. 30116(c); 11 CFR 110.17(b). Contribution limitations shall be adjusted accordingly: Statutory amount Statutory provision 52 U.S.C. 30116(a)(1)(A) ........................................................................................................................................ 52 U.S.C. 30116(a)(1)(B) ........................................................................................................................................ 52 U.S.C. 30116(h) .................................................................................................................................................. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES The limitation at 52 U.S.C. 30116(a)(1)(A) is to be in effect for the two-year period beginning on the first day following the date of the general election in the preceding year and ending on the date of the next regularly scheduled election. 52 U.S.C. 30116(c)(1)(C); 11 CFR 110.1(b)(1)(ii). Thus the $2,900 figure above is in effect from November 4, 2020, to November 8, 2022. The limitations under 52 U.S.C. 30116(a)(1)(B) and 30116(h) shall be in effect beginning January 1st of the oddnumbered year and ending on December 31st of the next even-numbered year. 11 CFR 110.1(c)(1)(ii). Thus the new contribution limitations under 52 U.S.C. 30116(a)(1)(B) and 30116(h) are in effect from January 1, 2021, to December 31, 2022. See 11 CFR 110.17(b)(1). Lobbyist Bundling Disclosure Threshold for 2021 The Act requires certain political committees to disclose contributions bundled by lobbyists/registrants and lobbyist/registrant political action committees once the contributions VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:08 Feb 01, 2021 Jkt 253001 exceed a specified threshold amount. 52 U.S.C. 30104(i)(1), (i)(3)(A). The Commission must adjust this threshold amount annually to account for inflation. 52 U.S.C. 30104(i)(3)(B). The disclosure threshold is increased by multiplying the $15,000 statutory disclosure threshold by 1.28380, the difference between the price index, as certified to the Commission by the Secretary of Labor, for the 12 months preceding the beginning of the calendar year and the price index for the base period (calendar year 2006). See 52 U.S.C. 30104(i)(3), 30116(c)(1)(B); 11 CFR 104.22(g). The resulting amount is rounded to the nearest multiple of $100. 52 U.S.C. 30104(i)(3)(B), 30116(c)(1)(B)(iii); 11 CFR 104.22(g)(4). Based upon this formula ($15,000 × 1.28380), the lobbyist bundling disclosure threshold for calendar year 2021 is $19,300. Dated: January 28, 2021.
