ABSTRACT
This article examines the constitutionality of campaign finance reform bill in the U.S. It has been stated that if President George W. Bush believes that the bill is unconstitutional, he can veto it. During the campaign, Bush expressed several concerns about the campaign-finance reform. The legislators who were in the favor of the bill also took vow to abide by the Constitution. Those provisions of the bill would come into force, which have not been specifically ruled unlawful by the Supreme Court. The main concern is about that portion of the bill which denies to organizations, the right to publish advertisements within 60 days of a general election, or 30 days of a primary. This provision indirectly favors a candidate running for office.
