A nonconnected committee may use money raised for federal elections to make contributions to nonfederal candidates. Donations to nonfederal candidates are subject to state and local laws, however, not the Federal Election Campaign Act.
The committee must still disclose such contributions (as “Other Disbursements”) in its FEC reports.
This information is not intended to replace the law or to change its meaning, nor does this information create or confer any rights for or on any person or bind the Federal Election Commission or the public.
The reader is encouraged also to consult the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971, as amended (52 U.S.C. 30101 et seq.), Commission regulations (Title 11 of the Code of Federal Regulations), Commission advisory opinions and applicable court decisions.
