HARTFORD, Conn. –The State Elections Enforcement Commission has decided it will continue to limit the amount of money an individual can contribute to a candidate or committee, but in light of a recent Supreme Court decision it won’t be able to enforce aggregate contribution limits.
“The Commission will not enforce the aggregate contribution limits from individuals to various committees . . . unless it receives further guidance from the legislature or a court of competent jurisdiction.”
The SEEC ruling is in response to the Supreme Court’s decision in McCutcheon v. Federal Elections Commission.
The court’s decision removes the overall cap on contributions, but it does not impact the “base limits” on individual contributions.
