Issues Relating to Aggregate Contribution Limits

In October the Supreme Court heard arguments in a case (McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission) that challenges aggregate contribution limits in federal election cycles. With the case still pending, the Congressional Research Service recently published a report that examines the arguments for and against the aggregate limits, as well as the policy implications of striking down the limits.

A decision in the case is expected later this year.
