Abstract

My role at this symposium is to provide a brief overview of the three-judge court's decision in McConnell v. FEC,1 review the opinions, piece together what the court actually decided, and see how the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002 ("BCRA") 2 now stands. I will try to do that briefly, while giving a few general comments about what the court's opinions tell us about the state of campaign finance law today. As a preliminary matter, the three-judge court's opinions provide us with two radically different world views-almost two different intellectual universes-for thinking about campaign finance law.
