Affiliation of nonconnected PACs

Two or more affiliated committees are treated as a single committee for the purposes of the contribution limits. This means that all contributions made or received by affiliated committees count against the same limits.

Monitoring limits

To facilitate reporting and to avoid exceeding contribution limits, affiliated committees should set up a centralized recordkeeping system to ensure that contributions made and received by all the affiliates comply with the limits.

The treasurer of each affiliate is personally responsible for monitoring contribution limits.

Transfers from affiliated committees

A committee may receive unlimited transfers of permissible funds from other affiliated committees.
