Corporations Resume Political Contributions After Jan. 6 Pause

  • More than half of PACs changed policies after Jan. 6 riot
  • Most corporate PAC managers see tough environment in 2022

More than 75% of corporate PACs that paused political donations in the aftermath of the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol last year resumed giving during 2021, according to a survey conducted by The Conference Board and the National Association of Business Political Action Committees.

The survey didn’t specify whether those groups resumed donations to the 147 Republican congressional lawmakers who voted against certifying President Joe Biden’s November 2020 win over former President Donald Trump that day, but more than half who responded said they’d changed their policies in response to the Jan. 6 riots.
