Oregon Supreme Court Considers Campaign Finance Regulations
Be sure to read “Campaign-finance regulations go before high court” by Peter Wong in the Statesman Journal.
According to the article: “Justices of the Oregon Supreme Court are pondering whether the state should enforce campaign-finance regulations that Oregon voters approved in 2006 despite their rejection of a companion constitutional change in the same election. … Measure 47 would have limited individual contributions — to $500 in statewide contests and $100 in all others — and barred corporate and union contributions. It also would have set limits on contributions to all types of political committees.”
