Campaign financing to be hot top at LWV meeting

The League of Women Voters MN has studied how unlimited political expenditures by corporations will affect Minnesota’s electoral system topic in depth and developed a briefing paper.

This briefing paper  will be discussed at the May meeting of the LWV ABC Monday, May 14.

It highlights what existed prior to the Citizens United decision, what the decision was and what the decision has so far meant to Minnesota’s campaign finance law and laws in other states.

The link to the briefing paper is http://www.lwvmn.org/document.doc?id=413.

The meeting at the Andover Senior Center begins at 6 p.m. with a social time, followed by the program discussion at 6:30 p.m.

The Andover Senior Center is next-door to Andover City Hall at 1685 Crosstown Blvd. N.W.  Enter the city hall parking lot from Crosstown and proceed to the end of the parking lot.

The League of Women Voters is a non-partisan political organization that encourages informed and active participation in government and influences public policy through education and advocacy.
