Political debate is at the heart of the First Amendment, but too often politicians try to regulate it for election campaigns. At the federal level, judges have actively lobbied to remove excessive regulations on political expression. See this year’s judgment in for the latest information Federal Electoral Commission v. ted cruz.
But less skeptical eyes are turning to the 50 states, which is why it’s worth taking a few minutes to read a new report from the Institute for Free Speech. It is an index of how state laws and regulations treat political committees, grassroots advocacy, independent spending, and the like. The results aren’t biased, and they probably aren’t what you expect.
