Rhode Island Raises Campaign Contribution Limits
Lawmakers passed a campaign finance bill to double contribution limits and define terms regarding in-kind donations.
Senate Bill 846 raises the individual contribution limit from $1,000 to $2,000 per year and doubles permitted anonymous donations from $100 to $200.
In an effort to police in-kind contributions, fair market value is defined as the usual and normal charge for goods and services.
The bill became effective without the governor’s signature on June 27.
