111-5-13 Checks combining contributions with other payments.

A contributor may not issue a single check to a corporation or labor organization that represents both a contribution to the corporation's or labor organization's political action committee or separate segregated fund and payment of dues or other fees. Checks for contributions and checks for the payment of dues or other fees must be issued separately.

A contributor may issue a single check to an association or other organization which is not a corporation or labor organization that represents both a contribution to the association's or other organization's political action committee and payment of dues or other fees. The treasurer of the association's or other organization's political action committee that receives a portion of the proceeds of a single check issued for dues or other fees and a contribution, shall maintain records of the amount received as a contribution to ensure that individual contribution limits are not exceeded and other reporting requirements are met.

Under a payroll deduction plan, an employer may not issue a single check on behalf of its employees which check represents a combined payment of contributions to a political action committee or separate segregated fund of a labor organization of the employer's employees or to a political action committee or separate segregated fund of an association of which the employer is a member, and dues or other fees to such labor organization or association except when such check is issued to an entity separate from the labor organization or association on behalf of one or more employees for purposes of distribution.
