On February 2, 2017, the Federal Election Commission (FEC) announced the new federal campaign contribution limits (see chart). Pursuant to the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002, every two years, correlated to the beginning of each new election cycle, the FEC adjusts some of the federal limits for inflation, based on the Consumer Price Index.
