Supreme Court to weigh constitutionality of Arizona public campaign finance law

The Supreme Court of the United States. Washin...Image via WikipediaWashington Post: "The Supreme Court will again review government efforts to regulate campaign spending, agreeing to consider an Arizona law that distributes subsidies to publicly funded candidates who face big-spending opponents.

The decision was not a surprise, as justices in June had blocked a portion of the state's 12-year-old Clean Elections program, which authorizes public money for state candidates who bypass most private fundraising. The court stopped the state from providing 'matching funds' to those candidates, which become available when political opponents or outside groups spend in excess of state limits."
