Foreign Nationals. Contributions in any amount from foreign nationals (non-U.S. Citizen, not a “Green Card” holder) are prohibited.
Reporting Requirements. Maryland law requires us to collect and report the name and address of each contributor, as well as the employer and occupation of each individual whose aggregate contributions equal $500 or more in the four-year state election cycle.
