Campaign Finance and the 2012 Election

Willamette University's Center for Constitutional Government is pleased to sponsor a conference to assess the role of money in the 2012 elections and to investigate what changes, if any, should be made to federal and state campaign finance laws. Among the topics to be discussed is the impact of so-called "Super PACs", the role of money in judicial elections, the viability of public financing after the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Arizona Free Enterprise v. Bennett, and the efficacy of Oregon's "disclosure only" system of regulating contributions to political campaigns for state office. With the amount of money spent in political campaigns having hit a historic high, the conference promises to be both timely and valuable for attorneys, elected officials and concerned citizens alike.
