The Political Reform Act was adopted as a statewide initiative (Proposition 9) by an overwhelming vote of the electorate in 1974 and created an independent agency known as the Fair Political Practices Commission, to administer, interpret and enforce its provisions. The Political Reform Act requires the disclosure of contributions and expenditures in connection with campaigns supporting or opposing local candidates and ballot measures. This disclosure is accomplished through periodic filings of campaign disclosure statements.
The campaign contribution limit imposed by the City of Irvine is based upon the provisions of Municipal Code Section 1-2-401 through 1-2-405. Contribution limits are adjusted every two-year Election Cycle based upon the consumer price index. Click here to view current and past contribution limits.
