Campaign Contribution Limits

The County campaign contribution limitations ordinance (commonly referred to as Proposition B) was passed in November 1996. Proposition B regulates campaign contributions to candidates running for the offices of Assessor, District Attorney, Sheriff, and members of the Board of Supervisors. For a list of frequently asked questions and information on contribution limits, click on the handbook below.

DISCLAIMER: Contributions accepted during the campaign might be a basis for conflicts for Metro Board Members on contractual matters. For further information, you may contact the Metro Ethics Department at ethics@metro.net or (213) 922-2900. (Updated February 19, 2016)

**ATTENTION** Following is a recent legal analysis regarding Proposition B General Election Contribution Limits:

The code sections cited are from Los Angeles County Code 2.190.

  • Proposition B states that the Primary and the General elections are separate elections, and it provides a timeframe in which a candidate must declare whether he/she agrees to expenditure and personal fund limits. (2.190.050(B)); (2.190. 060(D)).

  • After the Primary election, all general election candidates may receive contributions in the amount of $300 until he/she files a Form 800 (Election Campaign Declaration-"ECD") agreeing to be bound by the voluntary expenditure limit.  (2.190.040(A))

  • Once that ECD is filed, the candidate may receive contributions in the amount of $1500.  (2.190.040(B)) 

  • The contribution limit may then change, one more time, depending on the ECD filed by the other candidate and his/her selection regarding expenditure and personal fund limits.  (2.190.070)

NOTE: This notice was sent to candidates and campaigns for County offices participating in the November 4, 2014 General Election.
