U.S. Supreme Court Declines to Hear Montana Contribution Limit Case
The challenge on Montana’s contribution limits has ended. The U.S. Supreme Court did not take up the case regarding campaign finance in Montana.
The 1994 law establishing the contribution limits was struck down in 2012 and 2015, but the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reinstated the limits in October 2017.
Proponents of the case said the low limits violated the First Amendment, while opponents said the limits encouraged more civil engagement.
