The BCRA and you
Today being the day of oral arguments in the case of the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act, this post has the guide from Howard Bashman on where to find stuff about the case, including this amicus brief stating the views of Virginia and some other states ("BCRA is clumsy. BCRA is unreasonable. BCRA has commanderred state laws, state constitutions and state ballot initiatives upsetting 'the usual constitutional battle of federal and state powers.'"). This article in yesterday's Arizona Republic cites the Virginia and other states' brief as evidence of the strange bedfellows joined in opposition to the BCRA.
