The Senate Judiciary Committee is holding hearings today on a Constitutional amendment proposed by Sen. Tom Udall (D-NM) that would allow Congress to regulate campaign financing.
Udall’s amendment would:
• Authorize Congress to regulate the raising and spending of money for federal political campaigns, including independent expenditures.
• Allow states to regulate such spending at their level.
• Not dictate any specific policies or regulations, but instead allow Congress to pass campaign finance reform legislation that withstands constitutional challenges.
