Wisconsin No Longer Will Enforce Aggregate Contribution Limits
Aggregate contribution limits for individuals and PACs contributing to state candidates are no longer enforceable, according to the settlement reached in Young v. Government Accountability Board.
The federal case challenging Wisconsin’s aggregate limits was on hold until the Supreme Court struck down aggregate limits for federal elections in McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission.
Before the settlement, Wisconsin law prohibited donors from giving more than $10,000 a year to all candidates combined.
