Vermont Attorney General Issues Additional Guidance on Contributions
The Vermont attorney general has issued guidance regarding the state’s contribution limits effective through the end of the year. His guidance interprets the $1,000 per election limit as meaning a candidate may accept a total of $2,000 for the 2013-2014 election cycle, even if the candidate does not face a primary contest. Candidates who lose their primary election may also accept the full $2,000. This guidance is effective for contribution limits only through the end of the year, as Vermont’s new contribution limits effective January 1, 2015 are per two-year election cycle rather than per election.
