ABSTRACT
Since 1976, Buckley v. Valeo's contribution-expenditure distinction has been the touchstone of the campaign finance framework. Currently, lower courts are addressing the constitutionality of contribution limits to independent expenditure committees and some have adopted doctrinal approaches that directly threaten Buckley's survival. This Note suggests an alternative approach to the independent expenditure committee question that stabilizes campaign finance jurisprudence around Buckley. Such an approach will provide future reformers with clear constitutional rules and sufficient flexibility to effectively address campaign finance problems.
