Cash Contributions and Aggregate Contribution Limits

Reference Number: 

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. T.C.A. §§ 2-10-302 and 2-10-306 also place limits on aggregate contributions from individuals and from political campaign committees. These limits (besides the cash contribution limit) are adjusted every two years and the registry of election finance publishes the adjusted amounts on its website.
