   12  Statutes, is amended to read:

   16  election, make contributions in excess of $500 to any candidate
   17  for election to or retention in office or to any political
   18  committee supporting or opposing one or more candidates.
   19  Candidates for the offices of Governor and Lieutenant Governor
   20  on the same ticket are considered a single candidate for the
   21  purpose of this section.
   22         (b)A person or political committee may not, in any
   23  election, make contributions to a committee of continuous
   24  existence or an electioneering communication organization which
   25  exceed $500 in the aggregate.
   26         (c)(b)1. The contribution limits provided in this
   27  subsection do not apply to contributions made by a state or
   28  county executive committee of a political party regulated by
   29  chapter 103 or to amounts contributed by a candidate to his or
   30  her own campaign.
   31         2. Notwithstanding the limits provided in this subsection,
   32  an unemancipated child under the age of 18 years of age may not

   34  political committee supporting one or more candidates.
   35         (d)(c) The contribution limits of this subsection apply to

   40  with respect to candidates for retention as a justice or judge,
   41  there is only one election, which is the general election.
