The District of Columbia’s new pay-to-play law will take effect on November 9, 2022. As we blogged about here, the Campaign Finance Reform Amendment Act of 2018 prohibits certain campaign contributions by contractors doing or seeking to do business with the D.C. government. This prohibition applies to entities holding or seeking contracts worth an aggregate of $250,000 or more and extends to contributions by senior officers of the business. A violation of the law may be considered a breach of the contract and can result in termination of contracts and disqualification from future contracts for up to four years. This law does not apply to contracts sought, entered into, or executed prior to November 9, 2022.
