National Drug and Alcohol Screening Association
Political Action Committee
The National Drug and Alcohol Screening Association (NDASA) has created a Federal Political Action Committee (PAC) to promote and support federal candidates for office who align with and support the association’s priorities, goals, positions and objectives relating to the Nation’s drug and alcohol testing industry.
The NDASA Federal PAC supports candidates for Federal office who will work with NDASA to promote an employers’ right to be a drug free workplace, drug free and safe communities, the reduction of illegal drug use, the elimination of the Nation’s opioid epidemic, the enhancement of training for drug and alcohol testing providers and a commitment to include NDASA in National drug and alcohol policy discussions.
Candidate Selection and Support:
Any candidate who receives support from the NDASA Federal PAC is not selected based on their political party or ideology, but solely on their support of NDASA issues and our mission statement.
Contributions and Limits:
The NDASA Federal PAC may only solicit and receive contributions from individual members of the association (no corporate contributions) and employees of members (written approval for solicitation required).
Federal law restricts the amount of money that any one contributor can give to a PAC. In any year, a single contributor may give up to $5,000 to a Federal PAC. Other restrictions on Federal PAC contributions include the following:
- Federal PACs may not accept contributions from corporations;
- No contributions may be accepted from foreign nationals;
- Cash contributions are limited to an aggregate of $100; and
- Anonymous contributions are limited to $50
Political Action Committee Governance and Administration:
Selections of candidates and administration of the PAC is conducted five-members of the association appointed by the NDASA Chairman for each Federal election cycle. Administrative fees to manage the PAC are paid by the association.
