WILL Challenges State and Federal Campaign Finance Laws

C. J. Szafir posted at the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty,
"...WILL filed a lawsuit on behalf of an individual, Fred Young, challenging a Wisconsin statute stemming from the 1970s that makes it unlawful for an individual to contribute more than $10,000 in the aggregate per year to all candidates for state office and to political committees. ...

"At the same time WILL has filed an amicus brief with the U.S. Supreme Court in the pending case of Shaun McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission which raises a similar challenge to the federal law. ..."
