Have the Feds raised the fundraising limit?


I always thought that the maximum allowed contribution was $2100 for federal candidates.

Then why did MittPolicyDaily announce the following:

Mitt Romney has appointed Utah Finance Committee co-chairs, including Alan Hall, Robert Litchfield, Blake Roney and Randy Wilkinson. Romney will hold a Utah fundraising reception on Tuesday, Feb. 20, at Grand America Hotel, with a VIP pre-reception at 5:30 p.m. (contribution: $2,300 per person) and a general reception at 6:30 p.m. (contribution: $1,000 per person).

The "McCain-Feingold" Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act required the Federal Election Commission to index contribution limits to inflation. It started at $2000 for the 2003-04 cycle, $2100 for 2005-06, and now $2300 for 2007-08. $200 is not statutorily required, but it seems to be rounded.
