Potential Impact of Citizens United On State Campaign Finance Laws

The Wall Street Journal published an article this morning discussing the potential impact of Citizens United v. FEC on state campaign finance laws prohibiting or regulating political speech by corporations.  If the Supreme Court issues a broad decision in favor of Citizens United, the state campaign finance laws on this issue may be in jeopardy.

The Supreme Court is scheduled to release one or more opinions today at approximately 10 am.  Please check back for any developments on this issue.
