Supreme Court Strikes Down Limits On Campaign Contributions

In a 5-4 decision in McCutcheon v. FEC, the Supreme Court has struck down limits on the total amount of money that an individual may contribute to political candidates, which had been set at $48,600 to political candidates and $74,600 to political parties and committees per two-year election cycle.  The decision does not affect the limit of $2,600 that one person may give to a single candidate during an election cycle.
