Montana Increases Campaign Contribution Limits
Campaign contribution limits increased following an every other year adjustment to match inflation required by state law.
The amount an individual or PAC may give to a campaign for governor rose from $680 to $710 per election.
The aggregate amount a PAC may give to a candidate for state Senate rose from $2,850 to $3,050.
Additionally, the same amount rose from $1,750 to $1,850 for a candidate for state House.
The Commissioner of Political Practices is in charge of calculating the increase by multiplying last cycle’s limits by an inflation factor provided by statute.
The new contribution limits took effect September 21. Contributions made before that date are subject to the old limits.
However, those who have already given money may contribute again up to the new limits.
