A federal appeals court has ruled that the state of Wisconsin cannot enforce a $10,000 limit on donations received by independent political action committees.
The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decision released Monday comes in a case brought last year by Wisconsin Right to Life. It argued that the $10,000 limit was an unconstitutional restriction on free speech.The appeals court enjoined the state from enforcing the limit in advance of the Aug. 9 and Aug. 16 state Senate recall elections.
No reason that AFSCME can't jack up its contributions at this point.
