The Commission is removing regulatory limits on the aggregate amounts that an individual may contribute to federal candidates and political committees in each two-year election cycle. The Commission is taking this action in light of the Supreme Court's recent decision in McCutcheon v. FEC, which held that the aggregate contribution limits are unconstitutional. The Commission is accepting comments on these revisions to its regulations.

In addition to publishing in today's Federal Register an Interim Final Rule to remove the aggregate contribution limits from the Commission's regulations, the Commission requests comments on whether to begin a rulemaking to revise other regulations in light of certain language from the Supreme Court's recent decision in McCutcheon v. FEC. The Commission intends to review the comments it receives as it decides what revisions, if any, it will propose making to its rules.
