California Gift Limits and Contribution Limits Raised
The California Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) held its November meeting, approving many changes for 2023.
The FPPC raised the annual gift limit to $590 and clarified the phrase “arrange for the making of a gift.”
The FPPC also expanded and further explained how a lobbyist or lobbying firm “places an official under personal obligation.”
The contribution limits have been adjusted to match increases in the cost of living, raising the limit for Senate or Assembly to $10,900 and $36,400 for governor.
The new limits take effect January 1, 2023.
