CAMPAIGN SPENDING LIMITS MOVING TO THE SUPREME COURT

As we have expected, opponents of campaign spending limits asked the Supreme Court to look at Vermont's spending limits case. NVRI will soon join their request to the court, and seek the Court's consideration of this critical issue. After 10 years of working on this, we are closer than ever to a full Supreme Court review. See our press release here.

If you want to read the petition from the plaintiffs, it is here, too. NVRI and our many colleagues will be filing our own briefs by the middle of June.


Best Regards,
Stu
