Lobbyist bundling disclosure threshold increases (2023)

February 2, 2023

The Federal Election Campaign Act and Commission regulations require certain political committees to disclose information about lobbyists/registrants and lobbyist/registrant PACs whose bundled contributions within a covered period exceed a specified threshold amount. The Commission must adjust the threshold amount at the beginning of each calendar year.

The threshold is calculated by multiplying the $15,000 statutory threshold by the difference between the preceding year’s consumer price index, as certified by the Secretary of Labor, and the price index for the base period (CY 2006). The resulting amount is rounded to the nearest multiple of $100. Based on this formula ($15,000 x 1.45167), the lobbyist bundling disclosure threshold for 2023 is $21,800.

The lobbyist bundling disclosure threshold was published in the Federal Register on February 2, 2023 at 88 Fed. Reg. 7088.
