McCutcheon v. FEC: Supreme Court Amicus Brief of the Center for Competitive Politics in Support of McCutcheon

Court Level
Supreme Court

Argument made by the Center for Competitive Politics ("CCP") that the district court's decision to uphold the aggregate individual contribution limits of the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act ("BCRA"), codified at 2 U.S.C. § 441a(a), did not reflect the exacting review demanded by the First Amendment interests implicated here. As stated in the document, "even if the court were correct in declining to apply strict scrutiny, contribution limits must still be closely drawn to match a sufficiently important interest.d McConnell v. FEC, 540 U.S. 93, 136 (2003). While noting this standard, the district court failed to adequately apply it."
