ABSTRACT
The article reports on the impact of the ruling on the reform scheme enacted by Congress in 1976 as a means to clean up presidential and congressional elections in the U.S. It states that the Federal Election Commission has cited a legal spending ceiling of 1,000 dollars for independent groups but was contradicted by a three-judge federal court in Washington and considered it as an unconstitutional violation of free speech. Moreover, the Supreme Court has left the decision standing.
