Supreme Court Agrees To Expedited Hearing On McCain-Feingold
Friday, June 6, 2003
The U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on the McCain-Feingold campaign finance "reform" law on September 8-four weeks before the court is scheduled to start a new term. This is the last legal stop for this statute which has thus far had a circuitous journey. NRA`s major concern with the law is its First Amendment blackout period, which prohibits groups like NRA from running issue-related ads 30 days before a primary election and 60 days before a general election. As this case proceeds, we will be sure to keep you apprised of relevant developments in future issues of the Grassroots Alert.
