General Information on Expenditures and Debts Incurred

An expenditure is defined as a gift, transfer, disbursement, debt incurred, or promise of money or valuable thing by or on behalf of a political committee to promote or assist in promoting the success or defeat of a candidate, political party, or question at  an election.

Expenditures must be election related; that is, they must enhance the candidate's election chances, such that they would not have been incurred if there had been no candidacy. Furthermore, expenditures, including loans, may not be for the personal use of the candidate or any other individual.

Debt Incurred is any unpaid debt that the committee is obligated to pay.
