ABSTRACT
The article presents insights into the advisory opinions regarding the U.S. state campaign finance laws. It suggest that states should consider the federal campaign finance laws because at federal level the approach is much enhanced by the Federal Election Commission's (FEC) advisory opinions. It concludes that by implementing FEC's advisory opinion potential speakers of state and local governments can eliminate infirmity that does not provide appropriate guidance.
