The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission sets the stage for a new era in campaign finance regulation. What will this new era bring? Some members of Congress want tax‐financed elections, as the Fair Elections Now Act would do. Others argue that changes in laws covering corporate governance are needed to restrain campaign financing by businesses. Still others want to expand presidential public funding in the run‐up to 2012. What should Congress do? What outcomes are likely given the politics and law of campaign finance regulation? Please join us to discuss the future of federal election regulation.
