f) The dollar amount of every expenditure;
g) The name and address of the person to whom the expenditure was made, or the name of and political unit represented by the committee to which it was made; and

a) The first statement on or before the thirtieth day preceding the election to which it relates;
b) A second statement on or before the fifth day before the election;
c) A third statement within 20 days after the election.

Any contribution or loan in excess of $1000 received after the close of the period covered in the last statement filed before the election (b above) but before the election itself must be reported within 24 hours after receipt.
